Nabeel is pictured above with New City College Principal Narzny Khan at the NCC Student Achievement Awards evening.
Another of his teachers, James Obrenyah, said: “Nabeel does not let his disabilities stop him from doing anything. I am very proud of him and of the college. He deserves this award and I think his example will go a long way to get others to do better and to aspire to be like Nabeel.”
The Mayor of London Adult Learner Awards – with 10 categories – were established last year by Mayor Sadiq Khan as part of his commitment to improve skills, boost confidence and help Londoners into better paid jobs.
Their aim is to champion the important role of adult learning in the capital, and celebrate the contributions of Londoners, employers and training organisations. They are a key part of the Mayor’s commitment to raising awareness of adult learning, which plays a critical role in his mission to build a better London for everyone.
The winners received tributes at the ceremony, watched by families and friends, employer representatives, the judges, and stakeholders from London’s education and skills sector.
