The Educate Awards has confirmed that it has extended the entry deadline to Sunday 5 July.
Due to the current circumstances, the team understands that schools, academies, colleges and universities are going above and beyond right now to support their pupils, students, families and communities. From continuing to open and run schools for children of key workers, to providing a range of work for those being home schooled – everyone is grateful for the dedication of teaching and non-teaching staff throughout this situation.
The Awards has factored in this uncertainty and extended the entry deadline from Sunday 21 June to Sunday 5 July to allow enough time for schools and colleges to write and submit their entries and nominations.
Co-founder of the Educate Awards, Kim O’Brien, said: “It has been a tough few weeks for everyone in education but the positivity and dedication is utterly inspiring and heart-warming to see. The most important thing for us to do at this time is say a massive THANK YOU!
“The Educate Awards has recognised and celebrated education and the teaching profession here in the North West for almost 10 years and we want to make sure we can do the same again this year.
Kim added: “The Awards do not take place until the Friday 20 November and we very much hope to see as many of you as we can walking the red carpet at Liverpool Cathedral later in the year. It will be one enormous celebration!”
