April 2015


The Phoenix Education Trust was this year's winner of the AGCAS award for employer engagement. A fantastic achievement for the trust and the collaborative partnership with Queen Mary University. The award recognises the excellent work Phoenix have done to encourage, empower and give genuine and worthwhile work experience to students attending the university. The Trust has also gained a huge amount from the specialist work carried out by the talented students we have had the pleasure of joining us at Phoenix.

The AGCAS award for careers service engagement focuses on employers who develop and sustain good working relationships with higher education careers and employability services. Voted for by careers and employability professionals, the award recognises those employers who provide outstanding support for careers services' work with students and graduates
