Principal & Chief Executive of NULC, Karen Dobson said: “BTEC is a high quality and demanding qualification, increasingly sought after by universities and employers, and indeed is a popular sixth-form pathway amongst our student population.  We have a broad BTEC offer at NULC, developed in partnership with key employers to recognise the skills needs in the region.  We deliver consistently high achievement rates and strong progression from NULC to higher education, further education and training or employment, so to be recognised in so many categories at a national level is a fantastic testament to our dedicated students and staff.”

Shortlisted nominations will now be judged by an expert panel of vocational employers, journalists, tutors and educationalists. Successful entrants will be recognised at a glittering awards ceremony on 6 July at the Royal Horticultural Halls in London.
