Award success for NESCol on the national stage

November 30, 2023

NESCol has earned two coveted prizes at the CDN College Awards.

There were wins in the Employer Connections and Skills Development categories.

Tonight’s ceremony in Glasgow provided a celebration of the sector in Scotland, with 14 awards contested by institutions from across the country.

To complete a successful evening, Zoey Filianore Wynters was commended in the Student of the Year section for her dedicated work as Equality and Diversity Executive Officer with the NESCol Students’ Association.

The Employer Connections Award celebrates an innovative collaboration with P&J Live, which has provided training opportunities and career pathways for a succession of students as well as professional development for staff.

The Skills Development Award also recognised collaboration, this time with Aberdeen City Council as students worked to promote meta skills to academy pupils across the city through a series of animations.

NESCol Principal Neil Cowie said: “My congratulations go to all involved in the two partnership projects and to Zoey for the well-deserved recognition she received in the Student of the Year category.

“The CDN College Awards provide a fantastic platform for Scotland’s colleges and we’re very proud to see NESCol’s name up in lights.

“Innovation and collaboration are two qualities that run through the work of students and staff. To have those efforts endorsed by the CDN judging panel is incredibly rewarding for everyone who is part of our college community.”
