The awards, which are now in their fifth year, acknowledge successful schools and projects which demonstrate how the dedication of teaching and management staff has helped to create better learning environments for pupils.
As the UK’s leading online education recruitment company, Eteach is keen to provide schools and individuals who are dedicated to helping the education sector with the acknowledgement that they deserve. Despite the fact that we have already formed strong relationships with schools and colleges all around the country, Eteach hopes to further reinforce these connections throughout the course of 2011.
Here at Eteach we always like to go one step further. As stated before, not only are we hugely proud to be sponsoring the 2011 Education Business Awards, we have created three award categories of our own.
Outstanding Teacher Award for Primary Schools – Eteach has created this award to recognise an individual within the Primary Schools sector whose dedication to teaching has gained recognition in the community and helped to improve the reputation of their school.
Outstanding Teacher Award for Secondary Schools – This award serves the same purpose as the above mentioned except it has been designed to recognise those working in Secondary Schools.
School Recruitment Award – We have created this award to recognise an educational establishment which has invested in its recruitment methods and processes to ensure a timely intake of appropriate teaching and support staff.
