Walsall College wins Further Education College of the Year award
Walsall College was crowned Further Education College of the Year at the Education Awards in Birmingham.
Now in its second year, the Education Awards was the first of its kind in the Midlands Region last year. Organised in association with Birmingham City University, the Education Awards celebrates and rewards the most outstanding contributors to the Education Sector, going above and beyond to promote excellence.
Those shortlisted were recognised at a glittering black-tie dinner on 6th July at the Edgbaston Cricket Ground.
The Education Awards is endorsed by a wide range of ambassadors, including Mayor of the West Midlands Andy Street.
James Norris, Assistant Principal for Commercial Development at Walsall College, said: “It’s an honour to be the winner of the Further Education College of the Year award. As one of the most successful colleges in the country, our skills and training provision is something we’re very proud of.
Winning the award is a testament to the amazing work our teaching staff and apprenticeship team do in ensuring that our students – both school leavers and adults – are equipped with the right skills and qualities to enter their chosen career path, and in turn become highly valued employees.”
