Students and Staff at John Ruskin College are currently celebrating after winning two prestigious accolades at the National Centre for Diversity Grand Awards, a high profile event which took place in London on 17th January. The College won the award for The Most Improved Organisation of the Year and was also placed at the incredible position of no 4 in the NCFD Top 100 index 2019; an index of the top 100 organisations which the National Centre for Diversity works with.
This year the College has demonstrated an incredible 11% increase in achievement rates and we are also proud to be among the top 25% in the country for Value Added. 94% of our students have progressed to either an Apprenticeship, Employment or University.
John Ruskin College would also like to take this opportunity to thank Mohammed Ramzan, for his invaluable contribution to the success of the College over the past 9 years, firstly as Vice Principal Equalities and Safeguarding and in the last 4 years as Principal and Chief Executive. He will be deeply missed by staff and students and leaves behind an unforgettable legacy which includes high expectations and aspirations for both staff and students, a passion and dedication to equality and diversity, as well as a strong commitment to the local community.
Alec Stow, Chair of John Ruskin College Corporation commented, “We are very proud and delighted that we have achieved these highly acclaimed awards which is due to the hard work of all our staff and students. I would also like to wish Mohammed continued success for the future.”
