Oldham Sixth Form College has just been shortlisted for an S-Lab award for "Innovation and Outreach Through a New Regional Science Centre".
This award scheme recognises and showcases safe, successful and sustainable laboratory best practice and has been established with support from the four UK higher education funding bodies (HEFCE, SFC, HEFCW and DELNI). It aims to highlight and share best practice in laboratory design, management and use and is run collaboratively with UK STEM universities by the University of Bradford-based Higher Education Environmental Performance Improvement (HEEPI) project. Although its centre of gravity is in universities, the initiative is increasingly working with commercial and private sector laboratories.
Assistant Principal Alan Matear commented: "We are delighted to have been shortlisted for this prestigious award which further recognises the outstanding work being done in our new science facility. We're now looking forward to applying for the next stage of the awards, which will be presented at the National Science Learning Centre in York later this year."
