Sam Wright, principal and chief executive at the Heart of Yorkshire Education Group, said the accolades have come at a “momentous time” for the group following a positive rating from Ofsted.

“The partnerships we have with employers and local authorities are vital to ensuring we deliver a responsive curriculum offer which helps to close skills gaps and ensures our learners can progress into prosperous careers,” she said.  

“Our adult learning programmes also enable learners to access education flexibly and alongside other commitments, ensuring that they can upskill or retrain at any stage of their lives - something we’re incredibly proud of.”

The awards ceremony will be held at York Racecourse on Thursday, January 25.
