The REACH Centre wins Prospects Postgraduate Award

The REACH Centre has won a top prize for its work with Lancaster University


The REACH Centre has won a top prize for its work with Lancaster University at the Prospects Postgraduate Awards 2014, a national scheme that celebrates the very best in postgraduate education. The award recognises the depth and breadth of activity the company has engaged with the university over eight years, as well as the models of business engagement the university has put in place. More than 150 leaders in the provision of postgraduate education attended the glittering awards ceremony at The Midland Hotel, Manchester, with a gala lunch and networking opportunities.

The Awards are run by Prospects, the UK's leading postgraduate education publisher. Chief executive, Mike Hill said: "It's fantastic to see such high calibre of entries from some of the UK's leaders in postgraduate education. Each year we're overwhelmed by the support and excitement we receive. Congratulations to The REACH Centre who provided an inspiring and accessible model which other businesses could replicate."

Judith Friesl, marketing manager at The REACH Centre said: "We have played an active part in innovative programmes developed by Lancaster University with the research and development needs of employers at their core. Our engagement on these novel programmes will result in significant benefits to our organisation, but also provide invaluable experience for graduates, as well as helping to ensure the university's programmes are successful."

Dr Mark Bacon, Director of Business Partnerships and Enterprise in the faculty of Science and Technology at Lancaster University, said: "The REACH Centre has consistently proved itself to be an excellent and reliable partner for the university, developing post-graduate courses, providing employment for our students, and giving excellent opportunities for our students to broaden their experience and apply their skills through placements. We believe they thoroughly deserve the recognition this award brings for their continuous enthusiastic collaboration with Lancaster University."
