Start360's Winning Streak

Winning Streak Collage

It's been a winning week at Start360 and we're still celebrating!

On 5 March we won 'Highly Commended' in the Provider of the Year category at OCN NI's Learning Awards.

Then on 7 March, our Chair, Alan Ledlie, won 'Highly Commended' in the Trustee of the Year category at the CO3 awards.

WELL DONE to Alan and to all our OCN staff and students on winning these wonderful awards!

Stephen has made a short video about the OCN award- you can view it below.

We were delighted to be able to bring staff from our SOE and Futures programmes to the awards and, more importantly, some of our OCN students too. The awards took place in the Stormont Hotel and were a great experience for all of us.

The CO3 awards took place in the La Mon hotel on the evening of 7 March, and were hosted by Wendy Austin.

Alan was unable to attend the event, so our Vice-Chair, Glynis Hobson, attended to collect the award on his behalf (we don't quite have Andy Murray video link capacity!) - we were then able to present Alan with his award at our Board meeting on 13 March.

Start360 CEO, Anne-Marie McClure, says,

'These awards are an amazing tribute to the hard work of our staff, service users and volunteers. We are so proud to work with both OCN NI and CO3, and to have our work recognised twice in the same week has been a brilliant celebration of everyone's inputs. It really is a Start360 Winning Streak!'
