South Devon College attended the AAT Training Provider Awards last night where they received the award for Innovation in course design and delivery. This annual Award Ceremony celebrates the outstanding contributions of accountancy training providers worldwide. Rachael Johnstone, Head of Business and Professional at the College, collected the award from AAT President, Vernon Anderson.
This new award category recognises training providers that have taken a unique or innovative approach to their delivery of AAT qualifications. The judges found South Devon College to be leaders in creating new and novel ways of engaging learners, stimulating the creation and sharing of knowledge, integrating learning and work, and generating business impact. The College also proved to help create and sustain an environment that fosters learning and is why the College were selected to win this award this year.
