About this award
Introducing the Education and Training Awards
Since the early 1900s, education has become increasingly more inclusive with the improvement of state education systems in many countries and the introduction of organisations whose aim is to keep all institutions on track and therefore give every learner the best start in life. But, with 2,600 independent schools operating in the UK alone - equating to approximately 615,000 students - the private education sector is notably flourishing despite the difficulties that have been faced over the last few years.
Nowadays though, education is no longer exclusively for those that are only just starting out in life. Education is now open to those in all stages of life - those that want to improve the skills they have already gained, those that feel they missed out on younger education due to uncontrollable circumstances, or those that just simply want to branch out into a different career path.
The third annual Education & Training Awards aim to recognise institutions, organisations and agencies who make the education of our societies their priority. Institutions welcomed to take part in these awards include adult education institutions, training centres, boarding schools, independent schools, early education organisations, vocational schools, grammar schools, e-learning platforms and so on. We actively encourage any person/organisation working in this sector to get involved and not miss out on the amazing opportunity of having your hard work recognised.
By being nominated for the Education & Training Awards 2021, which comes from a trusted and credible source, the institution in question can expect to gain invaluable publicity and recognition for the level of teaching they carry out. This award can also open the institutions to a whole new pool of potential learners by raising the company profile.
The companies which go on to be successful are presented with several options for further exposure. These include being involved in the annual celebratory, having a mention in our A to Z directory and being included on the Corporate Vision website.
Nominees and winners in the Education & Training Awards 2021 are welcome to promote their accomplishment however they choose to make sure both new and existing learners are aware of what they have managed to achieve.
Winning an award provides you with the evidence you need to prove that beyond doubt, you stand out from the crowd. Enhancing your victory with visual reminders, allows for the promotion of your brand to extend even further, which in turn can attract new employees and new clients looking to work with the best in the industry. Receiving third-party recognition helps to boost the reputation of your brand and the trust in the products and services you offer.
If you believe that you deserve acknowledgement for your hard work over the past 12 months, or you know someone that does, please let us know by submitting a nomination via our voting form.
You will find details of all our award winners here. Our featured winners are included in our digital award supplement on our website and distributed to the greater circulation.

Nominees who formally accept their nomination are given the opportunity to submit additional materials in support of their initial nomination. Although there is no obligation to supply material, we have found that many nominees value this stage in the process as much as our research team.

- Customer feedback
- Business performance
