The College of Haringey. Enfield and North East London (CONEL) has been shortlisted for a top higher education award.
CONEL is among 10 colleges in contention in the Further Education College category of the What Uni? Student Choice Awards (WUSCA) 2018.
The College offers higher national diplomas (HNDs) and certificates (HNCs), degrees in counselling and postgraduate and specialist teaching courses in Tottenham and Enfield.
Now in their fifth year, the WUSCAs offer prospective students unbiased views based on students’ reviews published on Whatuni.com as an alternative to traditional rankings.
Nominations for the awards are based on thousands of reviews from students studying courses at Level 5 (for example, HND or foundation degree) or above.
Lil Moray, 50, completed a Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (CELTA) course at CONEL in March and now teaches at the College.
She said: “The tutors on the CELTA course raised my self-esteem and enabled me access to employment, which contributed to my continued success and achievement.
“Accomplishment is not fate. It’s hard work, determination, learning and sacrifice, but most of all loving what you do.”
The Further Education College category is new for 2018 and CONEL is one of only two London colleges in the running for this prize.
The winners will be announced at the WUSCAs annual awards ceremony at The Brewery in Central London on Thursday 19 April, hosted by award-winning comedian Katherine Ryan.
Maralba Jani, Curriculum Manager for Teacher Education, which includes several higher education courses, said: “We take the quality of our provision very seriously and have passion for what we do. We want to continue the outstanding work and it’s immensely rewarding to have this recognised by our students.
“A huge thank you to all staff and mentors in the Teacher Education team for their hard work and dedication in supporting and inspiring the new generation of teachers.”
