Why enter the FE First Awards?

“Our Gold award for Digital & Social Media campaign was a great achievement for us. To be recognised by college peers and industry leaders in the field was incredibly valuable to us in demonstrating we were on the right track and that all our hard work had been worthwhile. Now that we have a proven record of success, we have renewed confidence and external validation to take new ideas to college teams.” 

Kristian Bentham, Marketing Manager, The Manchester College (part of The LTE Group)
