Sewell FM sponsor Golden Apples Education Awards once again

Sewell Facilities Management is proud to give its backing to the Hull Live Golden Apples Awards for the seventh consecutive year.

Over the past eighteen months, the education sector has gone above and beyond to support its staff and pupils at an unexpectantly difficult time for all. No one could have planned for the pandemic, and schools, colleges and universities across the globe had to adapt quicker than ever to still deliver the curriculum despite the circumstances.

This year, there are nine awards up for grabs, with some new special recognition categories.

  • Teacher / Lecturer of the Year (Primary)
  • Teacher / Lecturer of the Year (Secondary)
  • Teaching Assistant of the Year
  • Administration / Business Support Staff
  • Unsung Hero
  • New Teacher of the Year
  • Lockdown Hero Award
  • Sustainability Award
  • Wellbeing Award

Paul Marshall, operations director of Sewell Facilities Management said;

“We are incredibly proud to be the lead sponsor of the Golden Apples Awards once again, especially this year.

“Education is fundamental in shaping children and young people’s futures, and professionals across the sector go the extra mile every day to bring out the best in their students.

“When the world stopped, education couldn’t, and the recent GCSE and A-Level results are testament to all education professionals who have continued to ensure they provide the same quality education to allow their pupils to succeed in light of every challenge the pandemic has inflicted.

“These awards are a fantastic way to shine a light on individual and team efforts and achievements – I cannot wait to recognise and celebrate each and every one of them.”

The Golden Apples Education Awards are not about Ofsted ratings or Key Stages, they are about the people who drive our education forward, who inspire, support, cajole and cultivate the talent that offers so much for the future.

They raise the profile of great teaching in our community and reward those who show unstinted devotion to helping build not only the future of Hull and East Riding, but the future prospects of our country.

Nominations close in October, with finalists being judged by an independently selected judging panel and recognised at the awards ceremony at the MKM Stadium on 8th December 2021. This will be Hull Live’s first live awards ceremony since before the pandemic, so it’s time to dust off your suits, pop on your party frocks and raise a glass. We’re ready – are you?
