STAFF from Isle and Wisbech campuses scooped several major awards at The College of West Anglia's annual staff awards ceremony.

More than 100 guests, including family and friends of the award winners, were present at the event where 24 individual staff members and two teams from all four campuses were presented with certificates by college managers and governors.

This culminated an excellent year for the college, in which it became the first college of its kind in Norfolk and Cambridgeshire to achieve an "outstanding" grade in an inspection by Ofsted.

The awards were made to staff who demonstrated excellence in a range of different areas of the college's work and recipients came from all the campuses - Wisbech, Isle, King's Lynn and Cambridge.
