Middlesbrough College is first in country to win anti-bullying award two years running
A TEESSIDE college has become the first in the UK to be awarded an anti-bullying award for the second time.
Middlesbrough College was the first UK Further Education College to receive an award from the Bullying Intervention Group last year.
And this week it became the first college in the UK to receive the BIG Award for the second time.
Suze Clarke, Student Liaison Coordinator, said: “This year we have continued to develop the bullying prevention and intervention strategies that we have in place and to raise the profile of our zero tolerance stance on all forms of bullying.”
The Bullying Intervention Group is a social enterprise, created to administer the BIG Award for schools, colleges and services for young people.
To achieve the BIG Award for a second year, Middlesbrough College had to meet a range of criteria, including making sure that all students are able to achieve their potential without fear of being bullied.
