Jane Delfino MBE, director of employability at Manchester Academy, is Mosaic’s School Hero for Autumn 2013 in recognition of her outstanding support of Mosaic’s secondary school programme.
The scheme aims to raise the aspirations of 11-18 year olds, providing them with the skills to succeed in school and improving their employability.
Jane was presented the award at an event at the British Muslim Heritage Centre with Nick Clegg on hand to congratulate her on her achievement.
“I am delighted to receive this School Hero award, and particularly thrilled I got to meet the Deputy Prime Minister. Mosaic’s mentoring programme helps Manchester Academy to turn these young people into employable and skilled citizens, with the capacity to give back to the community in positive ways.”
