Peterborough Regional College shows commitment to health

Peterborough Regional College (PRC) been recognised for its promotion of health and wellbeing amongst learners and staff for the second time.

The Healthy FE and Skills recognition is part of a programme supported by the Learning and Skills Improvement Service (LSIS) and Skills Funding Agency.

To gain recognition providers undertake a self-review and develop a two-year action plan they will work towards to improve health and wellbeing.

PRC is one of nine organisations that have recently achieved this recognition again.

Joanne Hather-Dennis, Executive Director of Students at PRC said: “The positive contribution that Healthy FE can make to a college’s learners and staff should not be underestimated, nor should the importance of health and wellbeing overall. We are very proud to have achieved Healthy FE and Skills status for a second time.”

LSIS’s Head of Quality and Equalities, Margaret Adjaye said: “We were really pleased that Peterborough Regional College wanted to become involved. They have shown a real enthusiasm for improving the health of their learners and staff, which can be important to improving outcomes for learners.

“LSIS’s number one priority for the FE and Skills sector is to promote improved teaching and learning; this scheme will enhance LSIS’s commitment to this by helping to improve outcomes for learners. We hope more providers will decide to get involved.”
