Why Concept4 are the 'Go to' Agency for Nelson & Colne College

Around 4 years ago, we pitched for Pendle Education Trust’s new website and accompanying websites for schools in the Trust. We were up against some serious local agency talent, but we won hands down, and here’s the reasons why…

We delivered a solution...

Other agencies provided a quote and timeline for the project, we went a step further and delivered a scalable, affordable and flexible solution. A truly beautiful Trust website with links to all schools in the Trust and a built-in application form system to promote career opportunities across the Trust and their schools. Next came primary and secondary school template designs which can be easily applied to future schools joining the Trust, but with flexibility of elements of the design for each school to retain their individuality. Since the project began we’ve delivered 5 school websites each in just a 4 week turnaround and we’re able to react just as quickly to future schools joining the Trust.


Then we upped our game... n&c.jpg

So impressed with how we handled the Trust and school websites, Nelson & Colne College (sponsors of Pendle Education Trust) asked us to revamp their college website. Their current site was cluttered, clunky and delivered a poor user experience – they needed to turn it around before the all-important enrolment season started. We created a full screen video website with a course finder/journey planner search function and course integration feeding from their MIS. This clear user journey for their key stakeholders makes for a far smoother user experience and video used in prominent locations throughout the new site is highly engaging for students, parents and employers.

But it didn’t end there...

Next up came Lancashire Adult Learning website – in partnership with Nelson & Colne College. With over 120 venues across the UK, Lancashire Adult Learning are the UK’s largest adult education provider. So we were of course excited to be asked to create their new website. With the brand brought to life through elegant animation, a course and venue search function on the homepage and course feed integrations set up for quick and easy updates, the site is a complete success. And so our relationship with the Nelson & Colne College marketing team continued to go from strength to strength. lal.jpg
