Leicester College held its annual Awards to Industry Breakfast 2017 on Friday 12 May 2017 at the taste restaurant based at Freemen’s Park Campus.
Awards to Industry ceremony is a celebration of the outstanding learning and training collaborations between local businesses and the College.
Partners were presented with awards in six categories; Work Placement Award, Partnership Award, Apprentice Employer Award, Small Business Award, Large Employer Award and Company of the Year Award.
The businesses shortlisted for the awards have all provided vital support for education and training in partnership with Leicester College through donated materials, equipment and their expertise to enhance the learning experience.
Awards were presented by Tracy Kinsley, Vice Principal for Employer Engagement Commercial and International, and Andrew Barlow, Director of Commercial and Apprenticeships.
The Company of the Year award was won by Leicester Riders, who have been working with Leicester College for a few years now. Especially since the opening of the new Leicester Sports Arena, the partnership between Leicester College and Leicester Riders has grown even stronger.
