The Isle of Wight College has been recognised among the winners of the Association of Colleges’ Beacon Awards – the most prestigious awards in further education.
The awards celebrate the best and most innovative practices among UK further education colleges and are used as an opportunity to highlight the outstanding colleges and practices that deserve recognition and who will go on to inspire others as well.
At a ceremony held in Westminster earlier this week, the Isle of Wight College was announced as a joint winner of The British Council Award for Internationalism alongside Burton & South Derbyshire College. The Isle of Wight College was also runner-up in the Widening Participation category.
The college won the international award for its successful collaborations, including a support programme for those who are suffering from mental health issues, enabling students to access the agencies and support they need, in addition to partnering with international students overseas.
Delighted with the news, Isle of Wight College…
