LOOKING after five children all under the age of eight would be more than enough for most people.

But mum Beverley Woodhead, aged 33, from Chapeltown, also found enough hours in the day to train towards her goal of being a midwife.

Last year Beverley decided to take an unpaid break from her job at Sheffield Council.

And now the Hillsborough College student’s dedication and commitment have been recognised at the Sheffield Adult Learners’ Week Awards.

Beverley said: “It was a big financial commitment but I wanted to gain more qualifications that would broaden my options in the future and enable me to study for a degree and look towards a career in midwifery.

Coun Jackie Drayton, Sheffield Council cabinet member for children, young people and families, said: “This really is a remarkable achievement by Beverley, who is most certainly an inspiration to all.’’

Tutor Jan Millward said: “Beverley is a model student, always first in and last to leave. Thoroughly conscientious, she is unwavering in her determination, enthusiasm and motivation to succeed.

“Beverley is destined to complete her qualification with the majority of her units at distinction grade – a truly remarkable feat.”
