We’re delighted to announce that Petroc has made it to the finals of three AoC Beacon Awards!
- City & Guilds Award for College Engagement with Employers
- British Council International Award
- Jisc Award for Effective Use of Technology in Further Education
Following our recent exciting news of being Commended for all three awards, we received news today that we are now finalists.
The Association of Colleges’ Beacon Awards celebrate the best and most innovative practice among UK colleges each year.
The City & Guilds Award for College Engagement with Employers Award recognises exemplary practice in demonstrating an outstanding ability to work with and provide a direct service to employers. In particular, colleges that are effective in meeting employers’ skills needs and/or apprenticeship requirements.
The British Council International Award seeks to celebrate an outstanding example of a College’s international work and the exceptional strategies to embed international activity within the broader college aims.
The Jisc Award for Effective Use of Technology in Further Education recognises where the effective use of technology has improved student experience, either through enhancements to teaching, learning and assessment, or through creating business efficiencies which have enabled positive change.
David Hughes, Chief Executive of the Association of Colleges said: “Colleges often don’t get the recognition they deserve, the AoC Beacon Awards aim to showcase exactly why colleges are so important and reward their dedication to learners and their progress in the workforce.”
The next stage of the awards is to have virtual assessor visits between December and mid-January, and the winners will be announced in Spring 2021.
