Two awards for Angus College

Angus Colleges received two awards at the 14th College Development Network Annual Awards in Glasgow last night (Thursday).

Hosted by Sally Magnusson, the event recognised the talent, projects and initiatives that colleges and their learners are working on throughout Scotland, as well as the achievements of college students.

Angus College won the Sustainability Award (sponsored by Capita) for its Angus Biofuel Academy project and in the Student Enterprise Award (sponsored by Skills Development Scotland) it was commended for its enterprise and engagement through the college shop.

John Henderson, chief executive of Colleges Scotland, commented: “The annual awards are a great opportunity to identify some of the outstanding work and achievements of colleges, their staff and their students.

“It’s important to congratulate these achievements, particularly during a time of such change to the college sector where professionalism and dedication to their learners has remained consistent.”

The College Development Network Annual Awards were sponsored by a number of organisations, including the Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework (SCQf), Skills Development Scotland, Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA), Brodies LLP, Capita and Tribal.
