A COLLEGE lecturer is celebrating a top award success.

Coleg Cambria is celebrating after winning two Lantra Land-based Learner of the Year Awards.

Llysfasi part-time lecturer and ex-student Steve Cutmore has been awarded the Lantra Land-based Lifelong Learner of the Year prize.

Katie Frimston, an ex-student from the Northop site, won the Young Learner of the Year award during the same ceremony.

The Land-based Learner of the Year Awards, held during this year’s Winter Fair on the Royal Welsh Showground in Builth Wells, celebrate the most exceptional and inspiring learners in Wales’ land-based and environmental industries.

Steve runs his own arboricultural and ecological consultancy business, as well as lecturing at Coleg Cambria Llysfasi in the evening since 2000.

He has continuously been obtaining certificates and qualifications and is currently studying for a BSc (Hons) Degree in arboriculture and hopes to study for a master’s degree in future.

Steve said: “I would like to thank Phil Venables for nominating me for this award, having previously been a runner-up back in 2004, I was so surprised when it was announced that I had won!

“I am very proud to be associated with Coleg Cambria.”

Ex-equine student at Coleg Cambria Northop, Katie Frimston was nominated for the Young Learner award by her Level 3 extended diploma in horse management tutor, Leoma Rushton for her hard work and dedication throughout the course.

Coleg Cambria principal and chief executive David Jones said: “We are delighted and proud that two of our ex-students have won these prestigious awards.

“We send both Steve and Katie our warmest congratulations and wish them both the very best in their future careers.”
