The Manchester College has been shortlisted in multiple categories at this year’s Educate North Awards, which celebrate, recognise and share best practice and excellence in the education sector in the north.

The College is up for four awards including: Business and Industry Collaboration; Social Mobility; Business Collaboration and Partnerships and the Employer Engagement award.

The College’s successful entries reflect its efforts in bridging the gap between work experience and industry skilled recruitment throughout Greater Manchester.

Carol Whitworth, The Manchester College’s Assistant Principal for Business Computing and Creative Digital Industries, said: “The industry partnerships we have with The Ideas Foundation and Flow Creative, for example, are crucial in our mission to give students first-hand experience of the world of work while they study with us.

“We are so thankful and grateful to all of our employer partners who give up their time to help us co-design and develop courses, as well as supplying our students with meaningful work placements and competition opportunities.” 

Now in its fifth year, the awards ceremony will take place on Thursday 25 April at the Hilton Manchester Deansgate Hotel, in the city centre.

Lisa O’Loughlin, Principal at The Manchester College, said: “I am incredibly proud of our colleagues and students, and the commendable dedication and skill we see day in and day out to provide opportunities for our students and help them succeed.

“It is so rewarding to see the College being recognised multiple times at the Educate North Awards and we look forward to the night!”

The College’s shortlisting success comes after it was rated the number one Further Education College in Greater Manchester for overall achievement rates, in the Government’s recently published National Achievement Rates Tables (NARTs), and following the achievement of ‘Good’ across the board in its latest Ofsted inspection, where inspectors recognised it as “a top choice for students seeking a supportive environment, where they can study a vocational course that offers both work-related learning and high-quality work experience”.

The Manchester College welcomes applicants from across the region and provides courses developed in partnership with local, regional and national employers to help all students, regardless of age, background or circumstance.
