THE International Student Centre at Ealing, Hammersmith and West London college has once more received the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in International Trade.
It won after being put forward by David Cameron for its role as a market leader in global Further Education recruitment.
The nomination was in recognition of the centre's sustained and outstanding contribution to the UK economy over the past eight years.
The college first got the Queen’s Award in 2008, when its international centre was still relatively new.
Paula Whittle, Chief Executive and Principal of the College, said: “Winning the Queen's Award for Enterprise for the second time is a momentous accomplishment.
“We have been recognised by Her Majesty for playing our part in the country’s international trading environment and we are proud to be a trusted, high quality and affordable destination for international students from over 115 countries.”
She added: “The award highlights the fact that we have been a market leader of international Further Education recruitment to the UK for the past six years.
“We have achieved this by constantly redeveloping our offer to meet the needs of our global job market, equipping students with employability skills as well as qualifications.”
The International Student Centre, led by Director of International College, Catherine Vines, has grown from a team of three staff to over 102.
