Entry deadline approaching for The Educate Awards 2018
The entry deadline for this year’s Educate Awards is fast approaching, with entries closing on Sunday 24 June.
The awards, in association with Copyrite Systems and Ricoh, was founded by Kim O’Brien in 2012. It is the largest education awards in the North West and celebrates every aspect of the school’s curriculum, teaching and staff.
Now in its seventh year, 2018 marks an exciting period of growth for the annual awards ceremony, and to celebrate the team has unveiled fresh new branding. Bolder, cleaner and streamlined, the subtle changes have freshened up the logo, while the signature tick – synonymous with the prestigious trophy handed out on the night – remains pride of place.
Kim O’Brien, founder of the Educate Awards, said: “We are proud and delighted to launch our refreshed branding. It was important that the branding didn’t stray too far away from the much recognised original logo, which is used by schools and colleges all across the region to promote their success at the awards.”
From inspiring teachers, superb support staff to innovative projects across the curriculum, the awards recognises the work of schools and colleges which are delivering outstanding education and helping students achieve their full potential.
In total there are 21 award categories, from Teacher of the Year, Career Aspiration, School Support Star of the Year and Outstanding Commitment to Sport.
Kim said: “With only a number of weeks left to get your award entries in, we’re calling on all local schools and colleges to get involved for 2018!
“This is a fantastic opportunity to showcase your school’s various departments or even nominate a teacher or support star who goes above and beyond in the classroom.”
Associate sponsors include Winstanley College, All About STEM, Liverpool John Moores University, CER, Progress Schools, Liverpool Learning Partnership, School Improvement Liverpool, The Foundry Agency, LSSP, The Bishop of Liverpool, The Rt. Revd. Paul Bayes, DMR David M Robinson Jewellery & Watches and BMD Law.
The awards are free to enter and open to all government funded and independent private educational establishments, including primary, secondary, further education providers and special needs schools in the Liverpool City Region, Cheshire, Lancashire and Greater Manchester. The deadline for entries is midnight on Sunday 24 June 2018.
