Rebecca Myrie, Head of Community Engagement at Milton Keynes College Group, commented: “This is the third year that we’ve published our Community Impact Report. We think that a vital part of our Fairer Futures Strategy is to demonstrate how we’ve made a positive impact on our communities, and to also highlight the areas that we’re working to improve”. 

Sally Alexander, CEO and Group Principal at Milton Keynes College Group, added: “This year, it’s been fantastic to see our mission to deliver Fairer Futures being recognised by others, with our recent Ofsted inspection and winning the MKBAA Award for Business Impact in the Community being particular highlights. There has been so much happening this year, from the recent Ofsted inspection, to our third College in the Community Day, to our South Central Institute of Technology (SCIoT) building opening to learners and making progress on our sustainability goals”. 

“I’d like to say a huge thank you to the colleagues, learners, employers and partners who made all of this happen. By working together, we can deliver Fairer Futures to our communities, and I am excited to see what the future holds.”
