Wakefield College Shortlisted for Prestigious Awards

Press Release Corporate

Staff at Wakefield College are celebrating after being shortlisted for two Times Educational Supplement (TES) awards. The College is in the running for further education awards in the Marketing Campaign of the Year and Contribution to the Local Community categories.

The College’s Marketing Department was shortlisted for its higher education promotional campaign which resulted in a 40% increase in applications for university-level courses this year. The Services to Business team also gained a place on the shortlist thanks to their pioneering work with local employers and Job Centres, resulting in over 300 previously unemployed people securing a job.

College Principal Sam Wright said: “I’m delighted that the College has been shortlisted for not just one but two prestigious TES Awards in recognition of the fantastic work we do. Staff from both departments can be justifiably proud of their nominations.”

Over 100 colleges and training providers submitted entries for one or more of the 12 categories, which recognise the best individual and team contributions to the sector.

Winners will be announced at a glittering awards ceremony held in London in February where members of the education sector and Government ministers will be in attendance.
