Focusing on looking after students and the community at large has led to a new award being made by The Bedford College Group.
The Customer Focus Award was given for the first year to Anne-Marie Hamilton of Shuttleworth College for her excellent work supporting students, staff and employers.
A course manager for Land & The Environment at Old Warden near Biggleswade, Anne-Marie was presented with her prize at the group Achievements Ceremony at the Bedford Corn Exchange in November 2017.
Anne-Marie is well equipped for this role coming from a beef farming family and after studying Biology at university, worked as consultant in the industry. In addition Anne-Marie has set up groups and activities to share good practice of livestock management, including involvement in cattle shows in the summer. Come the lambing season she is up at 6am, with her sheepdog Blue*.
