“This is a great accolade for the college and recognises how hard staff work to ensure our curriculum is fit for purpose and aligned to industry expectations.

“This also gives employers confidence that the college is training the next generation of staff, upskilling and re-skilling those in jobs who are looking to progress and keeping up-to-date with industry standards.
