NELSON and Colne College Sixth Form has hosted a business networking meeting run by Burnley Football Club.

By Official Appointment is a group of businesses in Burnley and Pendle that are recognised for being good at what they do, and the knowledge that they would benefit from a closer working relationship with the Clarets.

A college spokesman said: “As part of this collaboration, the college was pleased to welcome representatives from other partner organisations to its own Farringtons restaurant, for a network meeting.

“Feedback from the event was extremely positive.

“In particular many of the guests spoke of how impressed they were with the college’s recent success and how initiatives such as the Career Academy, when paired with impressive new facilities, will enable students to go on to achieve even greater success in the future.”
