National Awards for Pastoral Care in Education - Welcomes Entries

National Awards for Pastoral Care in Education open for nominations

The National Awards for Pastoral Care in Education is the only scheme to recognise the outstanding achievements of pastoral care staff, programmes, and institutions across the education sector.

The awards exist to shine a light on great practice in all aspects of pastoral care work and celebrate the heroes who are dedicated to supporting children and young people in their learning.

All entries will be assessed by an independent judging panel and a shortlist of finalists will be announced after entry has closed.

All finalists, sponsors and dignitaries will then be invited to attend a presentation event in September 2023

In addition to the enormous prestige of winning a national Award, all winners will also receive a £100 cash prize.
