The Trafford College Group's Marketing team named among best in the country at leading industry awards

The Marketing team at The Trafford College Group has been highly commended in a prestigious national awards ceremony.

The team of eleven, who cover the three Trafford Group sites, Altrincham, Stretford and Stockport, beat competition from other colleges from around the country to be named 'Highly Commended Marketing Team of the Year' at the FE First Awards 2020.

The team was recognised for its innovative working practices in supporting adults and young people during the national lockdowns.

When schools and colleges closed to most students in March, The Trafford College Group’s Marketing Department launched a communications campaign providing advice and guidance on access to education, as well as safety information and the latest news on re-opening.

Marketing Manager for The Trafford College Group, Elaine Andrews, said: “We were thrilled to receive highly commended status in the FE First Awards.

“Switching our marketing activity online was not an easy task. This award highlights the exceptional level of performance and achievement by our team in helping reassure existing and prospective students during what has been an unprecedented year.”

The FE First Awards are the sector’s annual opportunity to celebrate marketing best practice. They showcase the excellent and imaginative work that is being achieved in Further Education colleges across the UK, and a high volume of entries was received this year.
