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.

This year marks an exciting period of growth for the awards, as it expands in to Greater Manchester and accepts entries from all 10 boroughs (Oldham, Rochdale, Bury, Bolton, Wigan, Salford, Stockport, Manchester, Tameside and Trafford) alongside the Liverpool City Region, Cheshire and Lancashire.

After seven years, the awards has also refreshed its branding to mark the exciting new chapter. 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.”

“We can’t wait to see the new branding light up across social media, our website and most importantly, the awards night itself on 16 November.”

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 adds: “With only a number of weeks left for schools and colleges to get their entries in, we’re calling on all local schools and colleges to get their entries in! This is a fantastic opportunity to showcase your school’s various departments or even nominate an individual 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. The shortlist will be announced prior to the awards ceremony and the winners will be revealed on 16 November at Liverpool Cathedral.
