We are pleased to inform you that the Skills Network have established an annual Peter Roberts Collab Group Bursary as an award for outstanding achievement for a student from a Collab Group College. It consists of a £5,000 bursary to support the student from the end of their college education into self-employment or higher education.
Honouring Peter Roberts
Peter was an outstanding Principal of Stockport College and Leeds City College as well as a former Chair of 157 Group (Collab Group). Known throughout the further education sector as a warm, humorous and dedicated professional totally committed to the success of his students. The sector was deeply saddened at his untimely death only weeks after his retirement. As a long-standing partner, The Skills Network wanted to recognise Peter’s unique contribution to the sector and its esteem and affection for a friend and erstwhile colleague by supporting an annual award to a great student who reflects the outstanding work of the sector.
Who might be eligible?
Any student who is undertaking a course of study in a Collab Group college who either:
- has an offer to go to a university or other higher education institute to study for a technical or professional education qualification; or
- is looking to establish their own small business.
