We are delighted that our Foundation Degree in Therapeutic Work with Children and Young People was awarded the prestigious ‘National Training Award 2012 for a Medium Sized Employer’ at the SkillsUK event at Birmingham NEC. This is in addition to the Regional Award our degree won last month!

This is a real achievement for the school and especially for past and present FDA students. The judges praised our work in developing staff skills and as a result outcomes for children and felt the social benefits of the degree put it far ahead of other entries who increased productivity or made big profits. The awards are for all areas of business, not just special education, and other finalists included big local authorities, national building societies and big colleges.

We hope that achievements like this can continue to help the school in providing great outcomes for the children, increasing our public profile and ensuring continued support for staff.  We are thrilled with this fantastic achievement!
