Earlier in May the Adult Learners’ Week National Awards ceremony saw individuals and projects from all over England come together to accept their awards and to have their inspiring learning journeys celebrated, praised and respected.

Blackpool & Fylde College and BAE Systems were awarded the Learning for Work Project Award for the joint work carried out on the Project Control Foundation Scheme. The scheme, now completing its sixth year, is proving very successful with those of our employees who work whilst also attending Blackpool & Fylde College one day a week study for a degree in Project Management.

Andy Bloor, Project Management Learning & Development Manager, attended the event on behalf of our company at the Queen Elizabeth Exhibition Centre in Westminster and said; “It was really good for the hard work that is put into the scheme by ourselves, and by Blackpool and The Fylde College, to be recognised by such a prestigious National Award.”
