2020 Awards

2020 was the inaugural year of the Natspec Awards.

We received over 50 applications highlighting excellent practice across the colleges, and produced a shortlist of 18 outstanding pieces of work across the specialist FE Sector.

The plan for a glittering awards ceremony at Natspec’s National Conference went slightly awry due to the coronavirus pandemic, but we announced the winners of 2020’s awards in a wonderful virtual ceremony in July.


The winners of 2020’s Natspec Awards were as follows:

Innovative use of technology: Derwen College

Pathways into employment: Camphill Wakefield

Student voice: Coleg Elidyr

Wellbeing and mental health: Ambitious College

Inter-disciplinary working: National Star College

Partnership working: Wargrave House LEAP College

You can read more about the winning entrants and the rest of the shortlist over on the Natspec website.

Awards Webinars

All the winners of the 2020 awards were invited to present a webinar sharing the practice they won an award for. These webinars are running from October 2020 onwards. Check out Natspec’s events calendar for further details.
