It’s so important to celebrate the successes and triumphs of our students and staff. We love to show off the fantastic work created at MK College and highlight those who have overcome the odds to succeed and celebrate the hard work that goes into the development of education every day.
Students of the Year
Every year we dedicate a very special evening to reward our students and staff who have been nominated for their hard work, dedication, determination to succeed and enthusiasm for their subject. The evening is always a stand out event, shining a light on the wide range of achievements and successes of students and staff alike. For the past three years, our awards ceremonies have been sponsored by Imagine Presentations.
Award winners are chosen from the College’s full cohort of students from across Milton Keynes and beyond, with each having been nominated by their tutors and classmates.
On the night itself, the awards are presented by representatives of each category’s industry sponsor, demonstrating and developing the College’s partnerships with commercial businesses and providers.
We want to show the rest of Milton Keynes how much dedication, enthusiasm and talent goes into the work that gets created every day at the College. Every year we dedicate an entire weekend to creating a space to showcase a whole variety of work created by our students. Previous venues include Middleton Hall in thecentre:mk and MK Gallery.
This is the perfect opportunity for collaboration between different faculties, students and staff and the local community. On stage performances, catwalks, art exhibitions, activities and demonstrations are all featured throughout the event, giving our students the chance to show off their work. This academic year, due to restrictions, the Creative Arts department have produced virtual exhibitions to showcase their work.View Virtual Exhibition
The Young Creatives Project is an exciting initiative to build creative skills, wellbeing and resilience in young people. The project aims to create a vibrant and engaged youth arts culture in Milton Keynes, supported by partners including, Artswork, Arts & Heritage Alliance, MK Council and MAKE, MK’s Cultural Education Partnership.
The young creatives participating in the project, build their employability skills such as critical thinking and communications, as well as develop their project management experience. The project introduces the young creatives to local professionals from the MK arts community; and provides access to a range of workshops designed to empower creative decisions. As part of the project the creative cohort organise an event designed to engage youth in the arts.
A core cohort of 50 young people aged 16-18 will be supported to gain a better understanding of the cultural landscape in MK and beyond, where they undertake training to develop their own activities that other young people can take part in.
