Educate Awards 2016

The Educate Awards is delighted to announce a flurry of businesses have signed up as sponsors for 2016.

Liverpool John Moores University (LJMU), PCS Law, Merseyside Network for Collaborative Outreach (MNCO) and the Greater Merseyside Learning Providers’ Federation (GMLPF) will join this year’s awards as associate sponsors, while the Witherslack Group joins as a reception sponsor.

A new sponsor heading to the awards evening, which takes place on Friday 20 November at Liverpool Cathedral, will be PCS Law. The Liverpool-based Law firm offers a range of services and support for all issues involving education law. As a local business, it has great links to the local community and believes in establishing close working relationships with clients.

LJMU and GMLPF are continuing its relationship with the annual awards and will be sponsoring the Most Inspirational 16-18 Education Provider and Career Aspiration categories respectively.

A popular destination for students from across the globe, LJMU offers an exceptional student experience which is founded on high quality teaching, ground-breaking research and dedicated staff.

GMLPF is the umbrella organisation for local skills providers and represents over 80 training organisations across the region. It actively promotes the varied learning opportunities across the Liverpool City Region, ranging from apprenticeships, training, study programmes and NVQ’s.

The Merseyside Network for Collaborative Outreach (MNCO) is returning to the awards as sponsor of the Outstanding Arts in a Secondary School Award. The MNCO offers activities to schools and colleges; some of these are co-ordinated centrally and involve many MNCO partner institutions, whilst others are led by one particular institution.

Chris Bayes, collaborative network manager, says: “MNCO is delighted to announce our sponsorship of the Outstanding Arts in Secondary School category in this year’s Educate Awards.

“As a network, we are committed to supporting schools and colleges in accessing inspirational arts activities and we are looking forward to sponsoring this award!”
