Northern Regional College have been shortlisted for a prestigious award which involves colleges and training providers throughout the UK.

Santander Career Academy of the Year Award was created to recognise a school or college which is excelling in delivering a Career Academy programme for their students.

The NRC Career Academy in Engineering offers an exciting opportunity to students and is the first of its kind to be launched in Northern Ireland specialising in engineering.

The Academy, now in its third year, provides Level 3 Extended Diploma in Engineering students with an opportunity to be mentored by industry professionals exposing them to different career paths and raising their aspirations.

The next stage of the process involves a visit to Northern Regional College by the judging panel from London during March.
