Middlesbrough College & B.I.G Award (Bullying Intervention Group)

The college was the first FE establishment to achieve the accolade in 2012.

The ‘Bullying Intervention Group’ is a social enterprise, created to administer the BIG Award for schools, colleges and services for young people, and while many schools have fulfilled the criteria, the College is amongst only a handful in the country to achieve this recognised ‘anti-bullying’ status
