Read about Blackpool and the Fylde college winning the Queens Anniversary Prize.
Blackpool and The Fylde College received the prestigious Queen’s Anniversary Prize for Further and Higher Education on Thursday 25 February 2016. The elite award recognises the College’s innovative work in the field of higher technical and professional education in partnership with employers.
The College is one of only four general FE college winners and the only one in the North of England. The Chair of Governors, the Principal and Chief Executive, and students were amongst those invited to Buckingham Palace to receive the award.
Collab Group has produced a series of policy recommendations that we think should inform the direction of future government spending within the further education sector.
Today we are kicking off our #createdatcollege campaign. In this blog our Cheif Executive Ian Pretty provides an overview of the campaign.
