Backstage Academy Shortlisted for Prestigious Educate North Award

Backstage Academy has been shortlisted for a prestigious Educate North Award in recognition of our industry partnerships.

Backstage academy has been announced as a finalist in the Business/Industry Collaboration HE/FE Sector — one of 19 categories. Now in its fifth year, the Educate North Awards is a prestigious awards event which celebrates, recognises and shares best practice and excellence in the education sector in the North.

In our awards submission, we highlighted the substantial impact our industry partnerships have on the development of our students. Our partnerships take a variety of forms including product support from manufacturers of live events technology, masterclasses & specialist training from industry professionals and work placement opportunities.

“We are delighted to be recognised for our industry partnerships. They are central to everything we do here at Backstage Academy. Our entire ethos centres around employability, and therefore specialist industry collaboration is vital,” commented Industry Partnerships Director, Miles Marsden.

The Educate North Awards’ search for the region’s best university, further and higher education sectors culminates in a gala award night at the Hilton Hotel on Manchester’s Deansgate on April 25.
