The Bedford College Group is showing its strength and depth of educational excellence by being short-listed in three categories of a national awards run by the Times Educational Supplement.
The TES is the text book to which all in teaching and training refer, and its national awards celebrate excellent and innovative practice across the FE sector. With colleges and training providers having submitted a record number of entries, the 2018 awards – which will take place at London’s Grosvenor House hotel on 23rd February – are set to be the biggest yet.
In the FE category (Further Education for those 16+) The Bedford College Group is shortlisted under:
- Professional Services Team: Marketing Team, Bedford College
- Best Teaching & Learning Initiative: The Bedford College Research Network led by Sam Jones and Catherine Lloyd, Bedford College
- Assessor of the Year: Keith Haynes, The Bedford College Group at Tresham College.
The Bedford College Group Ian Pryce CBE said: “The significance of these categories demonstrates our success in reaching out to everyone in the community to ensure they understand they have the choice to come to us, our international reputation for raising standards in education and our work with some of the biggest names in business for training. To be shortlisted amid such a field of competition is almost praise enough.”
The Bedford College Group now comprises Tresham College and the National College for Motorsport in Northants, Shuttleworth College and The Bedford Sixth Form as well as significant engineering and skills-based learning outlets across both counties. Students progress from FE on to Higher Education (degree-level learning) in a variety of subjects including the Arts and Technology.
