Our charitable subsidiary, Preston Vocational Centre (PVC), who provide high quality construction training to young people and adults, have been recognised once again for their hard work and commitment in and around Preston.
PVC received the winner’s award for ‘The Educational Establishment of the Year’ at the Be Inspired Business Awards' (BIBAs) ceremony at the Blackpool Tower on Friday night (17th September 2021).
Judges were extremely impressed by the number of students that have benefitted from the Centre since it opened in 2009, with over 6,000 young people coming through the doors. Along with how the organisation responded to the impacts of COVID-19 and adapted teaching methods, invested in the Centre and continued to deliver vital services to students and vulnerable learners, all highlighted PVC as the deserving winners of the award. We are proud of the positive difference PVC make to transforming the lives of young people and adults.
Rob Wakefield, Chief Executive at CGA said:
“Winning the ‘Educational Establishment of the Year’ award is a fantastic achievement by PVC and doing so after such a challenging year and against such strong competition makes it all the more memorable. I felt both lucky and proud to be able to attend the ceremony and celebrate winning the award with such deserving colleagues from both PVC and CGA - Congratulations to the whole team.”
