The awards recognise the accomplishments of a wide variety of organisations and individuals from across Milton Keynes, with the ceremony being held at the DoubleTree by Hilton hotel at stadiummk on Thursday 9th March.
MK College will be competing against Willen Hospice and MK Dons Sport and Education Trust for the Community Impact honours after the awards’ selection panel made their choices for all the categories on 8th February.
On hearing that the College had been recognised by the judging panel, Principal and CEO Dr Julie Mills said: “It’s great news for Milton Keynes College to be named as a finalist in this category, alongside such well-respected and much-loved organisations.
“MK College has been at the heart of the community since its establishment in 1984, with our teams of staff working with extreme commitment and determination to fulfil our mission of transforming lives through learning.
“Being recognised as a finalist for this award, and in the year we celebrate a huge landmark in the history of Milton Keynes, demonstrates that the work being of the College continues to be valued and appreciated across the community, giving everyone connected extra impetus to continue striving towards excellence for our learners.”
Last year’s awards saw the College’s in-house commercial restaurant, The Brasserie, named as winners of the Hospitality category.
