We’ve been designated a National Beacon of Excellence by the government.
We've been judged by the Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education (QAA) as fully meeting UK standards, with 2 out of the possible 3 additional areas judged as 'commended' and 11 areas of good practice being cited.
We’re an Associate College of Lancaster University – ranked among the top 1% of universities worldwide and a National Training Award winner two years running.
We’re a National Beacon Award winner – our latest win in 2010 was for working with a group of colleges to make more than £200,000 savings through smarter procurement.
