14 April 2009 pr024.09

Wendy Moore, a lecturer in legal secretarial studies from North Benfleet is celebrating winning a prestigious national award for her teaching prowess.

Wendy has been teaching Institute of Legal Executives (ILEX) courses at the South East College of Arts and Technology, Southend-on-Sea for more than 15 years. Since she began teaching ILEX qualifications she has enjoyed an astonishing 100% success rate with her students.

She was presented with her award at a regional ceremony in Suffolk and also attended a glittering ceremony in London hosted by City & Guilds. The Medals for Excellence part of prestigious City & Guilds Lion Awards programme recognises and rewards exceptional people whose work makes them really stand out from the crowd. Each year, just 100 people from over three quarters of a million eligible candidates are selected to be awarded a Medal for Excellence.

“People like Wendy are very rare” said ILEX President, Mark Bishop. “The ability to not only teach complex subjects to the professionals of the future, but also to pass on her enthusiasm for the subject to them is a really special quality. Couple this to the astonishing pass rate for her students and that makes her one in a million. An award that is richly deserved. Many successful Legal Executive lawyers who started their legal careers as legal secretaries owe their career to lecturers like Wendy.”

Commenting on her win, Wendy said she was honoured and flattered to have received the award. “Winning such a prestigious award as the Medal of Excellence from City and Guilds for delivering the

ILEX courses has been a wonderful sense of achievement. It has highlighted the hard work by the ILEX team at SEEC to consistently produce excellent results with our students”.

“I aim at being adaptable and creative when designing the delivery of the tasks for my students. I like to think that I encourage them to achieve their goals and make their aspirations a reality. I am truly inspired by seeing young people achieve and playing a part in that process.”
