Double shortlisting for Capital College at Edinburgh Chamber of Commerce Business Awards

Edinburgh College has been shortlisted in two categories at this year’s Edinburgh Chamber of Commerce Business Awards.

The College has been named as a finalist in the Inspiring Partnership Award category alongside tech-experts Cadpeople for an innovative Virtual Reality (VR) programme which sees the College utilise VR to provide a unique learning experience for students studying across health and social care courses. This enables students to develop their skills and understanding of working with people suffering from dementia. Find out more.

The College and its Students’ Association, ECSA, have also been shortlisted in the Responsible Business of the Year category for their work in supporting students during the cost of living crisis. This has included the launch of a free breakfast club, a winter fair, a new partnership with foodbanks and the continued success of clothing swap shops and community fridges.

The winners of the Edinburgh Chamber of Commerce Business Awards will be announced at a ceremony held at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre on Thursday 9 March 2023.
