The West Cumbria college will recognise the achievements of student and local employers at an awards ceremony.

The annual event takes place on Thursday, July 6 at Lakes College.

In 2016, the ceremony was attended by over 300 students and special guests.

Cumbrian businesses have the chance to nominate themselves for an Employer of the Year Awards in one of three categories: Large Employer, SME Employer and Micro Employer.

There are also opportunities for firms to sponsor the three awards and attend the ceremony.
