Ayrshire College shortlisted for four college awards
Ayrshire College has been nominated in four categories at the College Development Network (CDN) College Awards 2018.
The CDN College Awards recognise the talent, skills and achievements of Scotland’s colleges, their staff and learners.
The College has been shortlisted in the Digital Learning, Essential Skills, Health Promoting College, and Innovation award categories.
Ayrshire College is a finalist for:
- Digital Learning Award for their Water Rescue VR project, which was designed in partnership with the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service to create a water rescue situation that would lead to students assessing the virtual incident and improving their first aid skills. The initiative was taught and delivered by the College’s Care department, with the College’s Learning Technology department recording footage of the water rescue via a state of the art 360 degree 4K camera.
- Essential Skills Award for the College’s work in Essential Skills; using a range of imaginative approaches to maximise the opportunities for staff and students to recognise the importance of core skills, and then for students to develop their essential skills in a vocationally-related manner.
- Health Promoting College Award for the College’s Promoting Wellbeing Action Plan 2018-2021, developed by the Promoting Wellbeing Group which sits within the College’s Values, Inclusion, Equality and Wellbeing (VIEW) Steering Group. The plan underlines the College’s commitment to supporting the positive wellbeing of all students and staff.
- Innovation Award for its on-campus partnership with the Open University, which offers Social Science students a unique route to obtaining an Honours Degree, by studying at the College on a part-time basis while accessing Open University resources.
The winners will be announced on Thursday 25 October 2018 at an awards ceremony at the Radisson Blu hotel in Glasgow.
