We are proud to announce that our Finance Administrator, Maria Hoyle, has achieved her NVQ certificate in IT Level 3.

Maria has been studying for her award since she started at The Athena Programme and is really pleased with her achievement.

Maria remarked:

“I would like to thank my tutor, Lynne Adderley from Train to Gain, for all the hard work she put in to enable me to get my certificate.  She made the coursework interesting and relevant to the work I do as Finance Administrator, and would definitely consider doing another NVQ”.

The Athena Programme is looking forward to continuing our productive relationship with Train to Gain and Blackburn College.
