Harlow College shortlisted for prestigious award
Education: Secondary / Thu 14th Apr 2016 am30 11:00am
HARLOW College has been shortlisted for a NatWest Skills and Opportunities Award, a fund that supports projects run by charities, social enterprises, community groups, state-funded schools and colleges across the UK. To be shortlisted, the College had to demonstrate how they are helping people in disadvantaged communities develop, create or access the skills and opportunities they need to help themselves; skills that will enable them to get into work or start a business, now or in the future.
The project the College has been shortlisted for is the Young Professionals programme, a practical project providing enterprise education to students seeking work in the creative and digital industries. If successful, this award would allow students to work alongside creative and marketing professionals, to develop, describe, design and promote inspirational concepts and products and to learn how to improve them. It will also provide an insight into running their own business, self-employment and a commercial learning experience to enable them to become innovative and ambitious designers of the future.
The college is competing against 15 other organisations within the Midlands and Eastern Region for the award worth £35,000 through a public voting process and needs your help to give them the best chance of winning.
Voting is open now until midday on Friday 22nd April, and you can vote by going onto the Harlow College website homepage and following the link from there.
