Stephen, who was rewarded for his outstanding commitment and attitude on his entry level English course said: "A couple of years ago I got laid off of work and when I went to the Job Centre I kept on getting forms. I couldn't read them or fill them out so I had to go to my brother who did it all for me.
"When I was school I bunked off and I really regret that but now it's good though because I have been shown what I have been missing out on.
"I was just sitting around and this has given me more confidence."
Business chief Cllr Asima Shaikh: "These awards are a wonderful opportunity to celebrate the hard work, dedication and achievements of our adult learners."
