Barking and Dagenham College has been recognised for its teaching of science, technology, engineering and maths.
At the Tes Further Education Awards on Friday, the college won the Best Teaching and Learning Initiative Award for its integration of Stem subjects into the rest of the curriculum.
Since opening its Stem Centre in 2013, the college has made the inclusion of Stem subjects in the rest of the curriculum compulsary.
Students are also encouraged to use alternative methods to demonstrate their learning, away from traditional written assignments and PowerPoint presentations.
The college emphasises project-based learning in an effort to develop the skills students need in finding employment, like problem-solving and using technology effectively.
