Karen Morris, vice principal curriculum and quality at Gloucestershire College, said: "We're extremely proud to sponsor this year's Innovative Education category at the NCLB awards. We've seen first-hand the difficulties faced by families across Gloucestershire over the past 18 months, but we've also seen an amazing community pull together, and how innovative approaches to education have been key to supporting local children and their families.

"As a college, we work closely with our community, building strong relationships with employers and providing young people with the right knowledge and skills for their careers. We know that this is key to ensuring that children will feel part of an active and supportive community.

"We're celebrating every single one of the organisations and individuals whose projects have helped make this happen, and continue to do so, as the work they do is essential to the successful futures of our children."
