Each year, organisations with the very best in workplace engagement are celebrated in The Sunday Times Best Companies list, the longest-running and most respected of its kind.  It is an annual ranking of Britain’s happiest and most motivated workforces. Its publication each year is a highly anticipated event in the UK’s business calendar.

Bridgend College is thrilled to announce it has been placed at number 28 in The Sunday Times 100 Best Not-For-Profit Organisations to Work For 2017.

Bridgend College is the only FE College in Wales to be recognised in this year’s Not-For-Profit category.

This respected award is further demonstration of the College’s commitment to both its staff and learners.

Out of 300 FE Colleges in the UK, Bridgend College has also won the Association of Colleges (AoC) Beacon Award for Development of Transferable Skills 2016/17. This is the 3rd Beacon Award won by the College in recent years, and is a testimony of the creativity and innovation of the magnificent staff and learners at Bridgend College.

In 2016, Bridgend College was the only FE College in South Wales to be awarded the rare ‘Double Excellent’ by Estyn, where the College’s current performance and its prospects for improvements were graded as Excellent.
