Twelve organisations have signed up to sponsor the Educate Awards 2017 ahead of the official launch this week.
The awards is the biggest celebration of education in the North West and will return for its sixth year on 17 November at Liverpool Cathedral.
Organisers have announced the 2017 ceremony will once again be held in partnership with Copyrite Systems and Ricoh as title sponsors. Copyrite Systems and Ricoh UK are two of the UK’s most innovative companies which are passionate about collaboration, technology and communication.
In addition, nine organisations have signed up to return as category sponsors, which include Liverpool John Moores University (LJMU); The Foundry Agency; Wray Brothers; PCS Law; All About STEM; Liverpool School Sport Partnership (LSSP); School Improvement Liverpool Ltd; Capita Education and Progress Schools.
Joining the line-up as a new sponsor for the Outstanding Arts in a Secondary School Award is the Liverpool Learning Partnership. The Liverpool Learning Partnership was established to bring together all of the learning establishments within the city of Liverpool and to retain and protect what is widely being referred to as the ‘family of Liverpool schools and other educational organisations’.
Kim O’Brien, executive editor of Educate Magazine and founder of the Educate Awards, said: “We want to take this opportunity to thank our sponsors for their continued support of the Educate Awards. The awards is such an important event which celebrates best practice and inspirational educators across the region and it is strengthened further by the support of organisations such as Copyrite Systems and Ricoh.
“Testimonials from last year’s ceremony highlight the impact the awards have on the whole school community and how much it means to not only schools that win, but those who attend and are shortlisted on the evening. We strive to make the Awards bigger and better year on year; with the support of Copyrite Systems and Ricoh and all of our associate sponsors, we’re excited to build on this success for 2017.”
