College shortlisted for four industry awards

City of Glasgow College

City of Glasgow College is in the running for four significant industry awards.

Construction Manager, an educational computer game developed by the college’s Innovation and STEM team on behalf of CITB, Construction Scotland and the Scottish Contractors Group, is a finalist at this year’s Building Innovation Awards.

The game is designed to encourage young people to consider a career within the construction industry, and increase awareness of professions in the sector.

Douglas Morrison, Associate Director for Innovation and STEM at City of Glasgow College, said: “To have been shortlisted for the best recruitment innovation category at the Building Innovation Awards is quite prestigious, so I am delighted that our work has been recognised as having value to the community.

"Construction Manager is fun and engaging, but has a serious element which can be used by educators and industry representatives to fuel interesting discussions in the classroom.”

The college’s procurement team has been shortlisted in two categories; Supplier Relationship Management and Team of the Year, at GO Awards Scotland which celebrate the best in public procurement across the country.

Deborah Fagan, Procurement Manager at City of Glasgow College, said: “We are delighted to be shortlisted in this year’s GO Awards, which identify excellence and innovation in all aspects of procurement.

"To be finalists in two categories endorses the excellent work and dedication of the Procurement team, embedding compliance, sustainability and innovation in all of our practices.”

Meanwhile, the college’s Fast Track to Financial Services programme is in the running at the Scottish Financial Services Awards.

The course was established following discussions with Skills Development Scotland (SDS) around skills, training and demand with a range of Financial Services employers, including Barclays, JP Morgan, HSBC, Morgan Stanley and Tesco Bank.

Chris Colvin, Curriculum Head for Financial Services & Accountancy at City of Glasgow College, said: "It has been fantastic to work with industry partners and SDS to develop such a forward thinking and dynamic course to meet the needs of local industry, and which helps equip our students with the skills required to embark in a career in the Financial Services Sector.”

The awards ceremonies take place on October 23 for the Building Innovation Awards, on October 24 for the Scottish Financial Services Awards, and on October 29 for the GO Awards Scotland.
