Bournemouth & Poole College are playing a vital role in this year’s newly created Bournemouth and Poole Tourism Awards (BAPTAs). Not only are they sponsoring BAPTAs Best Breakfast Award category, they also hosted the VIP Launch Event at their Poole site in September and will be hosting the semi-finals event at their Bournemouth site in the New Year. Students at the college are engaging with the awards and will be hosting guests, providing entertainment, assisting with the catering, producing videos and encouraging entries and nominations too.
Bournemouth & Poole College is the largest provider of Further Education (FE), Apprenticeships and professional training in the area. Their core focus is on developing the work skills of their students, so that when they leave they are ready to start or to progress within their chosen career. They are home to around 11,000 students from across the region, the UK and internationally, including 2000 apprentices.
Michael Johnson, Vice Principal, Finance and Commercial Development said “Bournemouth & Poole College are excited to be sponsoring the Best Breakfast Award. Just as a healthy, hearty breakfast is the perfect start to the day, we believe obtaining appropriate skills and training is the perfect start to any career. Continuing to develop and update these skills through further training and higher-level qualifications will help ensure a long and successful career and we can offer a great training partnership through professional qualifications and Apprenticeships.”
Jackie Phillipson from ROUTEpr and the BAPTAs, “We are absolutely thrilled at the energy, enthusiasm and support Bournemouth & Poole College have provided us since the start. They are 100% behind the awards and this is what makes the awards what they are. The team at the BAPTAs are excited for what’s to come and appreciate all that the staff and students at the college are contributing to the awards.”
