AoC Gold Awards

The AoC Gold Awards recognise and celebrate the achievements of successful and influential people who have attended further education and sixth form colleges. The awards have been running annually since 2000 but the first AoC Gold Awards were presented in 1996. The aim is to highlight the breadth and depth of talent among further education alumni and to celebrate the impact that colleges have had on the lives of their students.

In the past, winners have included scientists, economists and leading figures from the world of business, actors, comedians, sports personalities, politicians and chefs.
