The Educate Awards launches for 2018
The Educate Awards is thrilled to announce entries are now open for 2018’s ceremony, in association with Copyrite Systems and Ricoh as title sponsors.
The awards, founded by Kim O’Brien in 2012, is the largest education awards in the North West and celebrates every aspect of the school’s curriculum, teaching and staff.
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.
Since launching in Liverpool in 2012, the awards has grown rapidly, recognising schools and colleges right across the Liverpool City Region, Cheshire and Lancashire.
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 and Lancashire.
And following a record-breaking year in 2017, this year the awards is expanding in to Greater Manchester and will accept entries from all 10 boroughs (Oldham, Rochdale, Bury, Bolton, Wigan, Salford, Stockport, Manchester, Tameside and Trafford).
Founder Kim O’Brien says the expansion is due to unprecedented demand from schools in Greater Manchester to take part and be in with a chance of winning a prestigious award.
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 O’Brien says: “The Educate Awards is an important platform to celebrate education and give those working in schools who transform learning, the credit they deserve.
