A word from the sponsor ...

Wigan and Leigh College has a proud history of serving its community and working with students and schools across the borough.

The College has recently been recognised as a ‘good’ College by Ofsted and boasts a successful track record in student achievement across a full range of vocational and technical programmes, Apprenticeships and Higher Education courses which see our students step onto their chosen degree pathway or into employment. The College blends its commitment to high quality vocational teaching with industry experienced staff and provides the very best state of the art facilities so that students’ progress with the highest academic skills along with skills that employers really need.

Whether it is cutting edge Engineering facilities at our Centre for Construction and Engineering, our Clinical Skills Centre providing world class equipment for our Health and Social Care students or our Sports facilities as part of Leigh College, our students really get a head start in working with the best technology that the industry has to offer. We also offer our A Level Professional Honours Programme which through partnership with employers, provides students with a unique experience that offers much more than a qualification and will ensure that our students have a head start in the competition for degree places and jobs. We are also the largest College provider of Apprenticeships in Greater Manchester and provide opportunities for young people and adults to establish careers in engineering, construction, professional services and accounting, plus many more careers, working with more than 1,000 local and national employers.The College has been delivering Higher Education courses for over 70 years and we have recently launched our University Centre to enhance the experience and opportunities for Higher Education students.It is our belief that education has the power to transform lives so it is an honour to be able to sponsor the Education Awards. To be a central part of these celebrations is a proud moment in the College’s history.Anna DawePrincipal, Wigan and Leigh College
