ISE Development Awards shortlist announced

The Institute of Student Employers (ISE) has announced the shortlist for its annual Development Awards, which recognise and reward organisations committed to training and developing early talent. 

19 employers, higher education institutions and suppliers to the industry have made this year’s shortlist, including Capgemini, BNP Paribas, University of Hertfordshire and Santander Technology.

A panel of learning and development professionals will judge the shortlist and the winners will be announced at the ISE Development Conference in London on 28 March. As well as the awards presentation, the one-day event features a line-up of speakers, plenary and breakout sessions that will explore and challenge the world of student development. The ISE will also be launching the findings of its annual development survey.
