The professional and technical training and skills landscape has made an exciting step forward in the East of England through the merger of Great Yarmouth and Lowestoft Colleges to form East Coast College (ECC).
East Coast College prides itself on its ability to better equip students for university, an apprenticeship and their profession: through the development of soft skills, character and attitude, combined with top quality technical and professional training, ECC really is focused on turning a ‘passion to a profession’.
ECC is a partner college of the University of Suffolk, offering degrees and HNDs to local adults wishing to develop or start a new career. And for those returning to education, the college has a host of Access courses that provide the all-important spring board and study skills to start a degree.
This award is open to any companies, charities or volunteer groups irrespective of size or sector who are actively engaged in putting something back into the local community to make Lowestoft & Waveney a prosperous area.
The winner of this award will be able to clearly demonstrate and provide evidence of how they support and work with their local community - building relationships with residents, schools and/or community groups, either by helping to increase the employment opportunities for local people, providing training or re-training, support groups, donating used equipment, helping to renovate parks, clearing up rubbish, donations or sponsorship of local causes – the list is endless.
Entrants are asked to provide evidence of the following:
- How your company practices good citizenship.
- Your commitment outside of normal business practice to local people, places or events that is not aimed directly at improving your own business profit, but the quality of life in the local community.
- What the impact your work has on the local community.
By doing so they could receive the Community Pride Award.
Please email your completed form including evidence to: firstname.lastname@example.org
