We are among the best colleges in the UK for our innovative approach to education
Cambridge Regional College has been commended in three categories in national awards which celebrate innovation and excellence in further education.
The college is named among the best in Britain, singled out for excellence by the Association of Colleges (AoC) Beacon Awards.
The categories which we have been commended for are:
The Careers and Enterprise Company Award for Innovation in Careers and Enterprise
Edge Award for Excellence in Real World Learning
RCU Award for Support for Students
The Beacon Awards are into their 25th year and celebrate the best and most innovative practice in further education colleges in the UK.
Mark Robertson, Principal of Cambridge Regional College, said: “We work very hard to ensure that our students have an outstanding experience of education and that they can develop the highly sought skills needed to be successful, in their future careers, so it is fantastic to be commended for our approach to learning, for providing real world skills and for providing outstanding student support.
“We pride ourselves on the range of opportunities that we offer for all of our students – whether they are full or part time, have just left school, have returned to education as a mature learner or are learning new skills on an apprenticeship programme.
“Being recognised in the Beacon Awards is credit to the hard work and commitment of our staff across both campuses.”
A spokesman for the AoC said: “This year’s AoC Beacon Awards programme again provides assessors the opportunity to recommend those applications that should be commended for their practice in each of the award categories, having demonstrated a high level of innovation, impact and sustainability. Congratulations to the colleges that have met the AoC Beacon Standard.”
The awards commend colleges in eight different categories.
