Awards nod for Academy Transformation Trust's FE provision

Academy Transformation Trust Further Education has been nominated for a TES award for contribution to local communities

Posted by Stephanie Broad | February 25, 2016 | Events

Academy Transformation Trust Further Education (ATT FE) is nominated for the TES FE Awards in the ‘Contribution to the local community’ category, along with seven other providers.

Overall more than 100 providers, individuals and teams are in the running for 14 awards, which will be presented at a ceremony on Friday 22 April at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London.

The awards celebrate those who have had an outstanding influence on post-16 education in their area. They are open to anyone working in the learning and skills sector in the UK.

ATT FE was nominated for its exemplar relationship with JobCentrePlus, housing agencies and employers for their work in designing and delivering accredited programmes to support local adults. Their work significantly builds confidence, instils life skills such as personal hygiene and basic communication and develops progressive employability skills, to help people to search for and gain meaningful employment.

Support with employment for learners is the highest priority for ATT FE and they work with a range of employers to help learners develop the skills they need to find local employment. This includes direct work with major companies like Sports Direct, Chiquitos, Ray Shilling, The Range, ASDA, Marsdons, Bakkavor and others, resulting in hundreds of unemployed individuals finding permanent employment.

Simon Martin, Director of Further Education & Communities, said: “We are incredibly pleased that our achievements have been recognised in this way.

“We pride ourselves on our work with local communities as we aim to transform both the lives and prospects of individuals, and the social, economic and civic fabric of the communities that we serve.

“It is very rewarding to be recognised nationally along with so many other well-respected further education providers.”
