Do you know a Rising Star in Further Education or Training? Enter them for a Woman Who…Rising Star Award

The Rising Star in Further Education or Training Category, sponsored by Warwickshire College Group, is aimed at young women currently in full time Further Education (College or University) or on a recognised training course or Apprenticeship.

These young women are our Rising Stars of the future and are currently studying in an educational establishment or undertaking training whilst employed in an organisation.

You know how great these young women are! They may be doing something extraordinary in their spare time, have overcome challenges and they are definitely the ones to watch in the future.  These young women deserve recognition for their achievements, ability, drive and determination. This award is not about academic achievement but recognises other achievements too.

If you are, or know, a young woman who deserves to be recognised then please Enter her for an Award today.  The closing date for entries for the Rising Star Category is Midnight on Friday 30th March. (This category will not be interviewed)

Enter now… Finalists will be announced week commencing 9th April 2018.

There are three categories for entry:

• Rising Star in Secondary Education
• Rising Star in Further Education or Training
• Rising Star in the Creative World

You will be studying at School, College or University, or undertaking a recognised training programme or
Apprenticeship. You will be a true asset to your educational establishment or employer. You are
successful in your studies and you are really going places in the future with your chosen career. You
truly deserve the recognition for your achievements to date.

GUIDELINES: Please read and complete the Entry Form carefully. This Category will not be
interviewed. You therefore need to ensure that you tell us all about you, your goals, your career
aspirations and any achievements to date (not just academic achievements). If you have an unusual
hobby, you do work in the community or have undergone any special training please tell us. The Judges
don’t want a CV or a UCAS statement, they want to know about the real you, your goals and aspirations.

Last year’s winner:

Laura Brindley, Coventry University (Winner of the Rising Star in Further Education & Training Award 2017)

I am a biomedical science student and an aspiring Biotech entrepreneur, with a passion for improving people’s lives through innovation. But first and formost I’m a 22-year-old single mother, that refuses to let the obstacles and social stigmas define me. I am determined to succeed and tenacious enough to follow through on my goals. I put my all into every opportunity to develop myself both professionally and personally. I feel strongly about inspiring the future generation in the possibilities of STEM, especially young girls and actively initiate and run science enrichment programs for local children. (Laura Brindley)

“Laura was chosen as the winner in this category as she has really pushed herself in the face of adversity. Juggling normal life and study with a young family is difficult and she was recognised for her courage, determination and tenacity.” (Dr Sharon Redrobe OBE, CEO, Twycross Zoo)
“Laura is such an inspirational young woman who has since spoken at a Woman Who…Achieves Network to an audience of 100+ women in business, who were truly inspired by her determination and achievements to date. Laura is a real role model and definitely a Woman Who is going places in the future.” (Sandra Garlick, Founder of Woman Who…)
