Shortlisted for Natspec Awards 2021!

We are thrilled to announce that the college has been shortlisted for two Natspec Awards!

The Natspec Awards aim to recognise and celebrate excellent practice in the specialist further education sector. They promote innovation, continuous improvement, and raise standards across the sector.

The college has been shortlisted in two categories for Curriculum innovation and Innovative use of technology. Our Reset, Recover and Reconnect curriculum to support students during Covid-19 has seen us nominated in the Curriculum innovation category. While our nomination for Innovative use of technology was for adaptions made to Alexa for students with profound and multiple learning difficulties.
