With entries now open for the inaugural Milton Keynes Education Awards, the organisers recently invited the judges, sponsors and special guests to the DoubleTree by Hilton at Stadium MK to announce further details of the September event.
The city’s first education awards, organised by All Things Business, the team behind the Northamptonshire Business Excellence Awards and the Northamptonshire Education Awards, will be hosted by TV presenter Eamonn Holmes on Friday, September 22 at the same venue. EasiPC, a specialist IT service provider for the education sector, will be the headline sponsors and schools, colleges and individuals will compete in 12 categories.
Categories include Headteacher of the Year, School Business Manager of the Year, Primary and Secondary School of the Year and a Lifetime Achievement Award. Entries must be in by Monday, June 26.
All Things Business holds an Outstanding rating from the Awards Trustmark scheme. All award entries are, in the first instance, scored against set criteria and marked through a bespoke software-based scoring system before finalists are selected. The finalists will then be considered by the independent judges to choose a winner.
At the event at DoubleTree by Hilton, All Things Business Managing Director Ben Thomas said:
“We are very excited to be able to launch the first opportunity Milton Keynes has had to highlight the fantastic work that goes on in the city’s education sector.
“All Things Business has always championed the idea that business needs education and education needs business and we’ve made the Northamptonshire Education Awards one of the biggest nights in the education calendar and can’t wait to do the same for Milton Keynes.
“We’re thrilled to be able to welcome one of the UK’s leading TV presenters Eamonn Holmes as our awards host. I’m sure our sponsors, finalists and guests will be very excited about what’s in store on the big night.
“This is an excellent opportunity to be a part of what promises to be a special occasion. And, of course, to nominate anyone in the education sector you think is worthy of recognition, or to encourage them to put themselves forward.”
