The Bedford College Group


Major award tops off an exceptional year


Ian Pryce CBE Principal and CEO


T e Bedford College Group has won the title of FE College of the Year in the prestigious Times Educational Supplement (TES) Further Education awards. The Group, which comprises Bedford


College, Shuttleworth College and The Bedford Sixth Form in Bedfordshire, and National College for Motorsport and Tresham College in Northamptonshire has risen to become one of the top FE establishments in the UK and a leading provider of employer-related education. Ian Pryce CBE, Principal and CEO who has


steered the group to this success said: “T e awards night was a wonderful celebration of the work of our extraordinary sector.


T e shortlist for FE College of the Year was very


strong, so to be judged the winner is one of the best moments of my two decades at T e Bedford College Group. It has been a very special year for us on so many fronts. “T e congratulations of so many friends and


colleagues in the sector is overwhelming. I am so proud of our 1,200 staff and 16,000 students and so privileged to be allowed to be their Principal. I never thought an online event could be so emotional.” Bedford College took on a huge challenge


merging with Tresham College in 2017. Tresham was a large college in a different county, rated inadequate by Ofsted in 2016 and with extensive fi nancial defi cits. However, passion, determination and exceptional hard work from staff at all levels of the college has culminated in Ofsted’s recent announcement that T e Bedford College Group, (including Tresham), is rated Good in all areas, with adult and young learners developing ‘excellent’ study skills. T e Skills Funding Agency has also formally confi rmed the college’s status as Outstanding for fi nancial health with a £1m surplus.
