TES FE Award Winners

2020 Further Education Specialist Provider of the Year 

We are delighted to announce that we’ve just won the TES FE Award for Specialist Further Education Provider of the Year. The TES (Times Educational Supplement) has been the industry-leader for education journalism for decades and we’re proud that our work has been recognised.

The judges were looking for outstanding examples of best practice during the past academic year, and recognised our strong belief in the therapeutic benefits of craft-related activities, constant self-evaluation and meaningful work experience opportunities.

The college caters exceptionally well for complex young people, has innovative, creative tutors and not only educates the students but the rest of society.


Sadly this years’ presentation ceremony was a virtual one, so we didn’t get to collect our award in person, but as soon as it arrives it will take pride of place in our trophy cabinet.

Receiving a TES FE Award demonstrates once again that the quality of our provision is sector-leading. Our dedicated staff and fantastic learners have proved themselves an award-winning team!
