We're Shortlisted for 'Sixth Form College of the Year' at the Tes Awards!

We’re delighted to announce that JCC is again shortlisted for the TES FE Sixth Form College Of The Year Award! We’re so pleased the hard work put in by our staff and students has been recognised and want to thank them all for their dedication.

Tes FE Editor, Stephen Exley, announced:

Excellent practice exists right across the further education sector, and those shortlisted for the TES FE Awards are the cream of the crop. Our judges were extremely impressed with the calibre of entries. We had more entries for this year’s categories than ever before and the standard was higher than ever. To be shortlisted is an extraordinary achievement.”

Having also made the shortlist in 2017, we are hoping to take home the prestigious accolade this year after recently celebrating an Outstanding Grade 1 Ofsted Report. Winning the award would be the crowning accomplishment to an impressive career for our Principal Elly Tobin, who will be stepping down at Christmas and succeeded by our current Deputy Principal, Tony Day.

Tony responded:

“We are delighted to have been shortlisted for the 2019 TES Sixth Form College of the Year Award. This is a wonderful achievement for our staff and students and very much deserved. The fantastic work we do at Joseph Chamberlain has made us one of the country’s most successful Sixth Form Colleges. We go from strength to strength each year. Our students deserve the very best and that is what they get. We are really looking forward to the awards ceremony in March next year.”

The winners will be revealed at an awards evening at Grosvenor House Hotel on London’s Park Lane on March 22nd. Good luck to everyone shortlisted!
