Entries open for Educate Awards 2024

The prestigious Educate Awards has announced that entries for 2024 are now officially open. 

Founded by Kim O’Brien in 2012, the Educate Awards is the largest education awards in the North West and celebrate the achievements of schools, colleges, academies, and their teaching and non-teaching staff. 

The awards, in partnership with ASL, is open to all primary and secondary schools, colleges, academies and multi academy trusts across the Liverpool City Region, Cheshire, Greater Manchester, and Lancashire. It is also open to independent private educational establishments, further education providers, special schools, and specialist provisions. 

In January, Educate Awards revealed the launch of a brand-new category for 2024, ‘Most Inspirational Multi Academy Trust’. Sponsoring the Most Inspirational Multi Academy Trust award is sector-leading recruitment and bespoke consultancy organisation, Satis Education.

The new category will recognise a multi academy trust (MAT) which is committed to delivering outstanding educational outcomes for students across all its academies and fostering a culture of continuous improvement in learning and teaching. 

Educate Awards also announced that another exciting new sponsor will join the established list of loyal partners, innovative edtech and award-winning business, EdenFiftyOne, which will sponsor the Innovative & Creative Literacy Award. 

With the addition of the brand-new category, there is a total of 21 categories at the Educate Awards, all of which are completely free to enter. 

There is something to suit every type of school, college, academy and MAT. Whether you have an outstanding leadership team, excel in mental health and wellbeing support, or have the very best community partnerships. 

There is no limit as to how many categories are entered and submissions should be no more than 750 words and include a brief entry summary. The deadline for entries is Sunday, 14 July.

Kim O’Brien, Educate Awards founder, said, “The Educate Awards shine a spotlight on the incredible achievements of schools, colleges, academies and multi academy trusts across the North West. 

“In 2023, there was an extremely high standard of entries, with some truly inspirational submissions. 

“The awards are completely free to enter, so we encourage schools and colleges to enter, even if they haven’t entered before – there is a first time for everything. We love learning about the fantastic work across the region and want to showcase these wonderful achievements at our prestigious awards ceremony.”

Now in its thirteenth year, the Educate Awards 2024 will be in partnership with ASL. Associate sponsors include All About STEM, Angel Solutions, CER Education, CPMM Media Group, EdenFiftyOne, Liverpool City Region Combined Authority Careers Hub, Liverpool John Moore’s University, LSSP, Satis Education,  SENDSCOPE, and SupplyWell.
