Story added 15th Dec 2017


Congratulations to our Student Centre team, whose work has been recognised with a nomination for the ‘Professional Services Team of the Year’ award at the 2018 TES FE Awards.

The TES FE Awards ceremony will take place at the prestigious Grosvenor House Hotel in Park Lane on the evening of Friday 23 February 2018, and celebrate and reward the dedication and expertise of the people and teams who continue to make a significant contribution to improving the skill levels of young people and adult learners.

The nomination recognises a busy year of transformation for the Student Centre and Library, which has undergone an ambitious refurbishment project bringing City Lit's careers, IAG, enquiry and library services together in one place. It now offers a 'one-stop shop' approach to make it as easy as possible for students to access the information they need.

In particular I’d like to congratulate Caroline Leppard, Student Centre Manager, who has worked so hard to continually improve our service.”

Mark Malcomson, City Lit CEO and Principal said:

“It’s a great honour for the Student Centre team to be nominated in the TES FE Awards Professional Services Team of the Year category, in an incredibly competitive field against all providers nationwide. Clare and her team have carried out some incredible work to transform the Student Centre in the last year to provide a first class user experience for students.”

Good luck to the Student Centre team!
