EdenFiftyOne announced as new sponsor for Educate Awards 2024

Educate Awards is delighted to reveal an exciting new sponsor has come on board for 2024.

The newest sponsor to join the established list of loyal partners is the Liverpool City Region’s (LCR) own innovative edtech and award-winning business, EdenFiftyOne™.

EdenFiftyOne™ will sponsor the Innovative & Creative Literacy Award.

The company was established in 2021 after founder Tom Reynolds, a former LCR English teacher, five-times head of department, senior school leader, and national education adviser, wanted to reimagine and reengineer his trusty Excel spreadsheet as an interactive aide for the teachers, leaders and learners of secondary English education.

Having secured government funding and conducted successful pilot projects with English specialists from all over the world [including right here, with LJMU], the EdenFiftyOne™ platform [or EFO™] promotes the 51 universal skills at the core every English curriculum, ensuring a secure foundation for each school to build a creative, inspiring and content-rich curriculum upon.

English leaders have commented on the immediate improvement in engagement, experience, progress and outcomes that the platform has been able to impact.

In January 2024, EdenFiftyOne™ is launching a new programme, LAUNCH51: a collaborative pilot project with selected primary and secondary schools across the North West. This is a fantastic opportunity for schools to explore a different approach to English delivery.

Tom Reynolds said: “We want to celebrate the outstanding achievements of schools, academies and colleges that develop innovative approaches to literacy across the North West.”

Kim O’Brien, founder of Educate Awards, said: “We’re delighted to welcome support from EdenFiftyOne™. Its values perfectly align with our event, because education, and the people within it, are at the heart of everything they do.

“2023 was a fantastic year, and we are so grateful to each of our sponsors for their ongoing support. Without this support, the Educate Awards would not be possible.”
