Strong sponsor line-up bolsters momentum for this year’s ceremony

A fourteen strong line-up of sponsors are already confirmed for this year’s Educate Awards, eight months ahead of the prestigious awards ceremony.

The sponsors are the back bone of the annual event, lending their invaluable support to help us celebrate education and inspirational educators across the region.

Returning as title sponsors are Copyrite Systems and Ricoh UK, two of the UK’s most innovative companies which are passionate about collaboration, technology and communication.

Earlier this month, multi-award winning consultancy Hi-Impact joined the awards as the new Innovation in Education sponsor.


The glamorous awards evening is to be held at the prestigious Liverpool Cathedral on 17 November.


Other category sponsors announced so far include Liverpool John Moores University (LJMU); The Foundry Agency; Wray Brothers; Paul Crowley & Co; The Bishop of Liverpool, The Rt. Revd. Paul Bayes; The Liverpool Learning Partnership (LLP); All About STEM; LSSP; School Improvement Liverpool Ltd; Capita Education and Progress Schools.

Kim O’Brien, executive editor of Educate Magazine and founder of the Educate Awards, says: “Thanks to our sponsors’ partnership with the Educate Awards, we are able to bring this important event to the region and celebrate inspirational educators and schools.

“Without their support, we wouldn’t have been able to grow and develop our awards to the scale they are at today, so I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to each and every sponsor.”
