Students step up to the plate

Students in Leven have taken a step in the right direction after completing a course designed to get them on the right path in life.

At a special event held at the Fife College campus, the 11 students were welcomed by Jane Barclay, curriculum manager for community learning and development, and each waspresented with certificates by Louise Ballantyne, community education worker from Fife Council who congratulated on their success.

One of the students, Kim Nettleship, from Leven, thanked the staff for their support and said she was much more confident: “I feel better in myself and made choices in life I have never made before. So I would really like to thank the tutors for everything they have done – thanks to them I am who I am today!”

Anne Marie Castle, from Windygates added: “Before I started Step In, I had low confidence and low self-esteem. I have really enjoyed the course and I am looking forward to going on to further study and to start enjoying my life again.”

Jane commented: “Each of the students has realised their individual goals through the help and support of a dedicated team of staff and I wish them every success in the future.”
