Vocational Education Provider Award of the Year nomination
St Patrick’s is proud to announce that it has been chosen as a finalist in the Education Investor Awards 2013, one of the highest accolades in the education industry. As a leader in the provision of HND programmes, St Patrick’s has been nominated in the Vocational Education Provider of the Year category.
Organised annually by the Education Investor Magazine, the awards promote excellence and recognise innovation in the education industry. With more than 200 years of history, St Patrick’s is proud of the role it plays in expanding access to quality education and contributing to the continuous development of individuals and communities.
“The College has always sought to extend the reach of education to anyone with the desire to learn. Since 1803, St Patrick’s mission has been to empower students through affordable, high-quality education to change their lives”, comments Raj Kumaran, Director of Education at St Patrick’s.
Committed to providing students with the best education at an affordable price, St Patrick’s has assembled a world-class academic team to offer a quality assured delivery.
“St Patrick’s does not shy away from innovative ideas in the pursuit of advancing education and accessibility. We collaborate with a number of academic institutions and have links with global business leaders, which allows us to offer a wide variety of career-focused programmes”, adds Kumaran.
Showing real commitment to high quality education provision, St Patrick’s was the first independent college to have voluntarily undergone a review by the Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education (QAA). In its report, the QAA awarded a 'confidence' judgement - the highest possible rating - on the way St Patrick's delivers higher education programmes. It also concluded that 'reliance' could be placed in the public information that the college provides, resulting in a ‘thumbs-up’ from the quality experts.
“Through education, we aim to help individuals to make a positive impact on their communities and on the economy. We aim to deliver life-changing opportunities for students who are eager to achieve more and improve their lives. Our vision is to increase our learners’ employability, widen access to education in society, and encourage social inclusivity” concludes Kumaran.Back to News
