Prospects shortlisted for two Education Investors awards
Following Prospects Improve's success at the Education Investor awards last year when it won Education Consultants of the Year, Prospects has been shortlisted for another two awards this year.
Prospects in Gloucestershire has been shortlisted for the Education Partnership of the Year, for its work with the County Council's Youth Support Team. Alison Williams, Prospects Director of Children's Services and Guidance, said, "To be shortlisted for this award is fantastic news. My colleagues in the Youth Support Team always have the needs of the young people they support at the heart of their work. It's encouraging to have their dedication, work and impact recognised by shortlisting for this award."
Prospects Improve has been shortlisted for the School Improvement Service Award . Prospects Improve supports approximately 2,000 schools to develop and sustain high quality teaching. Sean O'Toole, Head of Prospects Improve, said, "We are delighted to have been shortlisted for the School Improvement Service Award. I have an excellent team of colleagues who support head teachers and their staff in many wonderful schools, such as Minworth Junior and Infant, across the UK. We are passionate about helping schools meet the needs of their pupils and students better. We look forward to the award ceremony, when we hope we will be as successful as last year when we won Education Consultants of the Year."
The shortlisted entries will now be passed to an independent judging panel, who will select a winner in each category. According to the award organisers, this year's awards have been the most competitive yet with submissions up nearly 30% on 2012. The winners will be announced at the Education Investors Awards 2013, a black-tie dinner at the London Hilton Hotel, Park Lane on Thursday 14 November.
