John Ruskin College, the first College in the country to have originally achieved the Leaders in Diversity accreditation in 2013, walked away with two prestigious awards from the National Centre for Diversity Grand Awards 2017 (Thursday 16th March) which took place in Leeds.
Tracy Andrews, our Director of Learner Experience & Achievement, won the award for Employee of the Year 2017 and the College was also placed for the second time in the top 100 organisations that the National Centre for Diversity works with.
Mohammed Ramzan, Principal & Chief Executive, says, “Tracy has worked tirelessly to ensure that the College meets the needs and enhances the aspirations of our learners. She has been central to narrowing the achievement gap and engagement in social responsibility for a wide range of learners for many years. I am delighted that Tracy has achieved the recognition that she deserves.”
Tracy’s response on receiving this award was as follows: “I am overwhelmed and humbled at receiving this award. This is recognition for all the staff and learners at John Ruskin College for the work they have done to ensure that all learners are valued and celebrated.”
