Among the current crop of partners are many household brand names and major employers in the Milton Keynes area, demonstrating the strong relationship between the College and the provision of sustainable employability skills for learners.

The announcement of this year’s Partners, Friends, Associates and Ambassadors was made during the February edition of Business 200, the regular networking event from the College’s Business & Leadership Centre.

Speaking at the announcement, MK College’s Commercial Director, Jane Horridge, was pleased to confirm the 2016 Partners and reveal this year’s Ambassadors. She said: “We’re delighted to be able to announce our Ambassadors, Partners, Friends and Associates for the coming months and beyond.

“By building relationships such as these, we’re helping to support the growth of locally-based businesses of all shapes and sizes, which in turn is assisting the community of Milton Keynes and its growing industrial ecosystem.

“Without the dedicated support and commitment of this network, the challenge of transforming lives through learning would be even greater and for that we are eternally appreciative.”
