Innovation Win at Eastbourne Business Awards 2018

We are very excited and proud to have won the award for Innovation alongside The Digital Guild at this year’s Eastbourne Business Awards.

On Friday 2nd November at The Grand Hotel, we joined 300 guests at the awards, which are dedicated to recognising, rewarding and celebrating local businesses.

The Digital Guild Platform is the UK’s first countrywide database for work experience opportunities, designed by a college for colleges, students, and employers. On the day of the award win, the 400th student was placed on work experience via the platform, two months after it went fully live.

East Sussex College Group’s Kevin Jones and Harriet Hadley-King have been working side by side with Switchplane to develop the system for the last year, with additional product management support from Will Callaghan at Friendly Digital.

For so long, work experience has been about who rather than what you know, and this platform is now changing that on a national scale. We hope this is the first of many award wins for this fantastic project.
