      diversity by advertising the bursaries.

      Chair.

3.6   The Committee discussed the next Friends event. After the excellent
      feedback from the first event it was agreed that the formula of a

      Scholarship had been awarded to BA Jazz students Tom I’Anson and

      to Alumni through the Knowledge Transfer Unit. Through this fund
      the College will be able to support more Alumni with business skill
