  • Recognises impact of FE sector in Scotland
  • Record numbers of entries
  • Enhanced quality of teaching & learning across all levels

Young Enterprise Scotland were delighted to be Gold Partners at this years College Development Network Awards, held at Glasgow's Radisson Blu Hotel on Thursday 25th November.

The CDN College Awards recognise the talent, skills and achievements of colleges, their staff and learners. They provide a valuable opportunity to celebrate the innovation taking place in colleges across the country. The awards showcase the impact the sector is having every day for our learners, communities and the wider economy.

Young Enterprise Scotland were very proud sponsors of the CDN Student of the Year Award. This years winner was Teresa Elliott, from Moray College UHI, who is applying complementary therapy skills learnt at college to help people with life-changing conditions. Much of her work has led to sustainable positive outcomes within the healthcare field, working closely with GPs and the NHS to alleviate some of the burden on surgeries with therapies that have not historically been easy to understand for healthcare professionals. In addition to the success of Teresa's outstanding business idea, the personal journey is equally as impressive and highlighted the sheer determination, belief, and compassion she has as a person.

Brian McEwan said, "Meeting with Teresa and her colleagues from Moray College on the night was one of the highlights of our year for the Bridge 2 Business team. Learning about her personal journey, and her technical ability, it's no surprise that Teresa won the Student of the Year Award. This is one of Scotland's rising stars, and her business will make a huge impact on healthcare in the Highlands for years to come. This is all the more impressive given that Teresa is now studying for her honours degree, and juggles a busy home life on top of building her career - a fantastic roll model!"
