Exeter College has been shortlisted for four coveted awards including ‘College of the Year’ and ‘Teacher of the Year’ accolades, in the Times Educational Supplement Further Education Awards 2017.

As well as being nominated for the College of the Year, Exeter College is also a finalist in a number of other categories.

Here is a full list of the awards Exeter College has been shortlisted for:

  • FE College of the Year;
  • Teacher of the Year;
  • Professional Services Team of the Year;
  • Marketing/Communications Campaign of the Year.

John Laramy, Exeter College Principal, said: “To be shortlisted for one award would have been great recognition for us, but to be shortlisted for four is a truly exceptional achievement. This shows both our strength and depth at Exeter College, as well as being clear evidence of the talent of our students and staff. 

“I believe we are the first college, in the history of these awards, to have been shortlisted twice for the College of the Year category which we won just a few years ago. These awards are critical part of a vibrant and successful further education sector and I would like to congratulate all the colleges and providers who have been nominated for an award.”

The news comes after a number of recent accolades for the college, including being graded Ofsted Outstanding in 2014 and awarded the coveted City & Guilds ‘UK Centre of the Year’ this year. In 2016, Exeter College also won a prestigious TES Award for the Apprenticeship Programme of the Year.

The awards will be presented at an awards ceremony at the Grosvenor House Hotel, Park Lane, London, on Friday 24th February 2017.
