From education to employment

Further Education’s brightest stars soon to be unveiled

It is now less that two weeks before the national Learning and Skills Improvement Service (LSIS) STAR Awards ceremony, which takes place in London on 24 November, will honour ten outstanding individuals and teams and more that 100 STARS of the further education and skills sector.

The STAR Awards were set up to recognise the expertise and dedication of individuals who make a significant contribution to the improving the skill level of learners across the country. The event, which is in its fifth successive year, will now celebrate a new award category for Lifetime Achievement.

Only ten winners will be selected from the 100 short-listed nominees who come from a wide variety of further education providers, including FE colleges, adults and community learning centres, sixth form colleges, voluntary and community organisations, and work-based learning and offender learning providers.

Overall category winners will be announced in Billingsgate in front of short-listed nominees, their nominators and special guests including Siôn Simon, MP, Minister for Further Education, and hosts Dr Floella Benjamin OBE and Mike Baker, the award-winning journalist, broadcaster, and education expert.

The event also marks the official inauguration of the Learning and Skills Improvement Service (LSIS), which launched on 1 October this year to support excellence, leadership development and self-regulation in the further education sector.
