The College of West Anglia (CWA) has made it through to the finals of a national award, having won the regional title.

CWA received the regional education and business partnership award at the 2018 Chamber Business Awards.

CWA won the title for the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough region. The college will now go forward to the overall final, which will be held in London in November, and could claim the title of business of the year.

The award recognises schools, further education college, universities and training providers that engage effectively with business.

Nominees for the category must have demonstrated how they work with businesses to help their students gain an understanding of the world of work and develop the skills for employers.
