Solar Bear & RCS shortlisted for awards

Solar Bear & RCS shortlisted for awards


Solar Bear and our partners the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland have been shortlisted for two awards. This is recognizing the work we are doing in training young deaf and hard of hearing actors in performance in BSL & English with the new groundbreaking BA degree course that started in September.

 The first award is a celebration of businesses and academic partnerships in the first ever Scottish Knowledge Exchange Awards.

 The award we have been nominated for is Sustained Partnership - For a partnership that has demonstrated long-term benefits to both the business and the academic teams.

The panel said of the partnership

 “This trail-blazing initiative between RCS and Solar Bear Theatre Company helped level the playing field for aspiring actors who are deaf and hard of hearing.

The partnership led to a bespoke degree and a theatre apprenticeship for deaf and hard of hearing actors and explored access and skills development projects for a previously marginalised group of learners.”

The awards will be held on 25 February in Edinburgh

The second award is the UK national CC Skills awards in the Training Provider of the Year category.  

These awards shine a light on those who are making a difference by passing on their skills by leading training and talent development schemes, mentoring or coaching formally or informally, or by being an inspirational manager or sector leader.

 The award ceremony will take place on 2nd March at the Backstage Centre, Purfleet, Essex.
