Success and achievements

We have a string of awards and accolades to demonstrate the excellence we provide in all aspects of our business.

The college has won a host of prestigious awards and accolades in recent years, demonstrating the excellence we provide in all aspects of our business.

We were once again named as one of the country’s top workplaces for promoting LGBT diversity after coming 60th in equality charity Stonewall’s Top 100 Employers 2017 listing – one of only two colleges nationally to feature in the prestigious listing.

We were also awarded the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents silver award for our commitment to health and safety, and our careers and employability team has been accredited with the Matrix national quality standard for a further three years for the quality of advice offered to learners.

Our environmental initiatives have earned us a gold award in the Green Impact Students' Union Awards for the second year running and the title of Students’ Union of the Year in the Further Education category.

And the college’s state-of-the-art Lifestyle Academy building topped the infrastructure category at the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) East Midlands Awards 2014 for its contribution to the area.

In 2015 we retained our Healthy FE and Skills status – a national accolade for the work we do to instil healthy living amongst students and staff through a year-round programme of events, activities and campaigns.

But what makes us most proud are the amazing achievements of our students and apprentices, who do fantastic things each and every day! Here are just some of their successes…
