College Introduces Scholarship Learners for 2018/19

Preston’s College are delighted to introduce their Level 3 gifted and talented scholars for the 2018/19 academic year.

After a morning of inductions and ice-breaker activities, the scholarship learners are fully equipped and ready to take up their prestigious role within College.

The new and exciting scholarship programme boasts a number of benefits to high achieving learners, including £1,000 over the period of their course, a free travel pass, an Apple iPad, free College gym membership and much more.

The scholars, who branch across a range of college provision from Professional Construction to Performing Arts, will help to promote the College to prospective learners by getting involved with open evenings and school assemblies.

Each scholar was selected following a formal application and interview process, going head-to-head with dozens of other applicants from across Preston, South Ribble and Chorley.
