Riverside College has extended its partnership with Widnes Vikings for the third consecutive season.

The Vikings are proud to deliver a host of successful programmes with Riverside College, including the Vikings Learning Centre. This unique educational facility supports young people aged 16-19 to gain qualifications and progress to work or further education, with incredible results.

The two organisations also work together to support apprenticeships and promote further education throughout the Borough.

In the 2018 season, the Vikings will take this partnership further through providing volunteering opportunities to students and delivering innovative campaigns that promote the excellent education and facilities provided by the College. The college will proudly appear on the first team shirt for the third year running and feature its branding within the Halton Stadium.

James Rule, CEO of Widnes Vikings, says: "We are delighted that Riverside College have chosen to renew their partnership with the Club for the third consecutive season. Together, we have made a real difference to the local community - raising awareness of their educational opportunities within Halton and supporting local people to gain vital qualifications and experiences in the Vikings Learning Centre."

"Riverside College is a fantastic institution and it is a privilege to have such a strong partnership with them. We are looking forward to developing this further in the coming season." 

Riverside College Principal, Mary Murphy said, “We are delighted and proud to sponsor the Widnes Vikings for the 2018 season. We are looking forward to a highly successful year working in partnership with the Club to provide an excellent learning environment for young people who wish to be part of the Viking Learning Centre.”
