Staff from Derby College and a group of local young people have reached the finals of the Prince's Trust annual Celebrate Success awards which will be presented at the London Palladium on March 15 and hosted by television presenters Ant and Dec.
The team, who were based at the College's Ilkeston campus for their 12-week Prince's Trust programme last year, won the regional finals for their community work to support SV2 in Derby which provides counselling and support for victims of sexual violence. They are now in line for the national Team Award.
More than 60 jobs and apprenticeships will be on offer at an information day on Wednesday May 11 at Derby College's Ilkeston campus in Pimlico between 12 noon and 4pm.
Derby College has worked with Direct Help & Advice (DHA) Training and Advice Centre on Bath Street to run an educational prevention enrichment project for learners which is funded by Derbyshire Commissioners Crime Prevention Grant.
