Educate the North logo with Telegraph

Over 200 people from across the UK attended the inaugural Educate North Awards last week and judging by the excellent feedback, the Awards have announced their arrival as a valuable and innovative new contribution with aplomb.

An initiative that was established to recognise the huge economic and social and contribution that the HE and FE sectors add to the North, was clearly very warmly welcomed and embraced and the timing of the initiative, in the midst of the growing confidence and optimism fuelled by the “Northern Powerhouse” was perfect.

Given that over 160,000 people are directly employed by universities alone across the North of England with annual capex budgets of billions and exports of HE services currently running at £12 billion, the challenges and growing opportunities that lie ahead for the sector, are deserving of an initiative which is anchored in the North and duly celebrates achievements in the North.

The three organising partners (Carm Productions, Don’t Panic and Prolific North) would like to thank our outstanding panel of judges for their time and also our event partners without whom this exciting new initiative could not have taken place.

Educate North was staged in association with The Daily Telegraph and Barclays, the University of Manchester Intellectual Property UMIP, the businessman John Kennedy OBE and Liverpool and Sefton Chambers of Commerce.
