RCU are delighted to support the AoC Beacon Awards once again this year as sponsors of the prestigious Support for Students category. Through this award we want to recognise, celebrate and promote wonderful examples of student support provided by colleges.

These awards offer colleges the opportunity to showcase the inspiring and innovative ways they support students, staff and communities. It represents the very best approaches that colleges have developed and are implementing to meet the skills needs of local employers and the career aspirations of their students.

Feedback from applicants tell us how they use the Beacon process to help staff to examine their practice, evaluate what is working well or could be developed further, create plans for improvement and inform college strategic planning and CPD support.
