Following the AoC review of its awards in 2017/18, the AoC Charitable Trust has agreed not to offer the existing Gold Awards programme for 2018/19.
We will be developing a new award that will still recognise and celebrate those who have benefited from their time in a college and are able to champion the work for FE Colleges.
The new awards, however, will have a revised nomination criteria along with a new name that more accurately reflects the purpose of the awards. We aim to launch the new award in early 2019 and announce/celebrate the winners and their colleges in the summer of 2019.
We will announce more details in the autumn.
