Dr Paul Phillips, Weston College Principal and Chief Executive, said: “The North Somerset Business Awards really set a profile for North Somerset and the fantastic work that is going on across the unitary authority.
“The awards we won are testament to a brilliant and entrepreneurial College staff who always put the learner first.
"I must also pay tribute to an exceptional management team which, combined with strong partners, has enabled us to develop both commercially and scientifically.”
The evening was hosted by Polar explorer Sir Ranulph Fiennes, who spoke about his life and the motives behind his determination to explore the most inhospitable parts of the planet.
Andrew Scott, North Somerset Business Leader's managing director, said: “This is the first major awards event for North Somerset and the quality of entries has been outstanding.”
