College website project wins sector award

The marketing teams at Solihull College & University Centre and Stratford-upon-Avon College were delighted to pick up a sector award for their merger website project at the FE First Awards 2019.

The FE First Awards are part of the College Marketing Network’s annual national conference, which brings together college marketing professionals from across the country to share best practice.

The project featured a new Stratford website, a refresh of the Solihull website, new functionality added including ways to link between the two to ensure visitors are aware of the other college’s offer, plus subject specific ‘relevant news’ sections, a ‘search by interest’ function and more. The team worked with digital innovation company Dev Clever on the project.

Head of Marketing & Communications at Solihull College & University Centre and Stratford-upon-Avon College, Sean Howitt commented: “It’s fantastic that as a combined college we have received this recognition from experts in the sector. It’s testament to the hard work of the team and all staff involved. Our goal is to continuously improve the experience of everyone who uses the website.”

The marketing team will continue to work with curriculum and support teams across the College to ensure the website meets the needs of all of its users as we move in to 2020.
