Bridgend College Travel and Tourism lecturers were recognised for their exceptional contribution to the teaching professing in June this year, winning the Silver Award for FE Team of the Year (one of just 52 Silver Teaching Award winners in the UK).

They attended the prestigious UK grand finale of the Pearson Teaching Awards 23 October hosted by Hugh Dennis (shown on BBC 2 ‘Classroom Heros’ last night). The night was a celebration of the nation’s top teaching talent with awards presented by stars such as Helen Glover, Alison Steadman, Timothy West & Sian Lloyd.

Even though our team didn’t win the category, they had done so well to win the prestigious silver award and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Well done all – an amazing achievement!
