Weston College appraised the 2016/17 academic year at its annual business breakfast.
The breakfast, which was attended by 250 people from across the North Somerset and Weston business area, was held in the recently reopened Winter Gardens ballroom, in Royal Parade.
Dr Paul Phillips, principal and chief executive of the Weston College Group, presented the college group’s annual report and summarised the key achievements, which included the college’s substantial growth, with investments in teaching, facilities and resources, and multiple national awards and record success rates.
The college group came in the top ten colleges in the country for turnover, while its success rates and achievement levels were also highlighted as being considerably above the national average, with the college ranked 18th in Further Education Choices’ national survey of student satisfaction.
Dr Phillips said: “Throughout the academic year we have seen massive changes to the education sector, but the Weston College Group has resiliently handled them.
“Going forward, the College will continue to lead in the sector while also continuing to strengthen its core further education provision, plus expanding in areas such as apprenticeships and our higher education offer through University Centre Weston.”
