Celebrating Success 2020 - Joseph Macmahon

Joseph Macmahon - Learning and Progression Student of the Year (Southend)

Joseph Macmahon from Westcliff studies Entry Level Art & Design at the college’s Southend Campus.

He was nominated for his exceptional behaviour and fantastic work. Joseph was very shy when he started college but now he is very motivated and one of the most confident in the group. He hopes to progress on to a media course at the college next year.

His lecturer said: “Joe is well mannered and a role model to the rest of his class. His behaviour within the classroom and outside of it is a shining example of what it means to be a student at South Essex College.  

“Joe’s work is always completed to a very high standard. Seeing Joe develop into the young man he is has been a privilege and I am looking forward to seeing what the future holds for him at the college.”

Joseph said: “I wasn’t expecting to win anything. I feel proud of myself and honoured to receive the award.

“I enjoy college, the staff are very caring and nice, I feel supported all the time.”
