Future Stars 2016
AoC Future Stars Programme 2016
The AoC Gold Awards recognise and celebrate the achievements of successful and influential people who have attended further education and sixth form colleges. The aim is to highlight the breadth and depth of talent among further education alumni and to acknowledge the impact that colleges have on the lives and careers of their students.
As well as honouring college alumni, each nominating college of a Gold Award winner is asked to nominate a Future Star. These are current students who have similar career aspirations as the winner. The Future Stars are invited along to the Gold Awards presentation and have a chance to meet their winner to find out what it takes to carve out a career and how the college can help achieve that success.
Future Stars Grants
As part of the Future Stars Programme, each nominated student is invited to apply for a grant from the AoC Charitable Trust to enable them to participate in an activity which would support their career aspirations, enhance their employability and would provide them with an experience which would be over and above what they might expect to receive as part of their course.
