Advocacy Staff Commendation

Senior Advocate Nicola Benney has been nominated for a Commendation for the portfolio she created in achieving her Level 3 Diploma in Independent Advocacy. ACTS Ltd, the assessors used by Dewis CIL for their advocacy staff completing the qualification, are able to nominate up to five learners across five categories for a Commendation. Nicola was the overall winner for the Autumn Term 2016 and will now be competing for the annual Medal of Excellence. In her report, the assessor said Nicola had gone “above and beyond” what was expected and Evelyn Smoldon said:

Nicola has demonstrated a very high quality of Independent Advocacy and also excellent Reflective Practice.”
