With the pandemic having affected so many aspects of the way we work, this year’s entries reflect the invaluable work that has been done by so many education staff in some very difficult circumstances. 

This year’s ceremony will be online for the second year running and other settings or professionals are welcome to attend to hear the inspirational stories from across the country.
