The minister presented a certificate to Lisa Cassidy, a graphic design student at The Manchester College, who created the winning design for a chartered status logo.

“I was amazed to win such a high profile competition. As a student you never think your work is good enough so this is a real boost to my confidence,” said the 24-year-old from Eccles.

She also won an iPad and the chance to shadow FE Week designer Dan Duke on a work experience placement.

Runners up prizes were also awarded
