Leamore’s popular adult education institution, Walsall Adult & Community College, will find out whether it will receive another accolade next week after being shortlisted for a national award.
The college, which provides hundreds of learning opportunities to over 8,000 students each year, is one of sixty-nine organisations that have been nominated for a Green Gown Award 2012 by The Environment Association for Universities and Colleges (EAUC).
Now in their eighth year, the Green Gown Awards recognise the exceptional sustainability initiatives being undertaken by universities and colleges in the UK.
This year’s ceremony will take place on Monday 5 November 2012 at The Great Hall, University of Birmingham.
WACC has been shortlisted alongside Derbyshire Adult Education Service, Jewel & Esk College and Circus Space for its ongoing sustainability initiatives.
Last June the college fought off competition from larger organisations and businesses to triumph at the West Midlands START Awards 2011, sponsored by the Prince’s Trust Business in the Community.
It is looking to build on its success by gaining the Learning In Future Environments Index (LiFE) Accreditation with the EAUC.
