ELATT have been recognized again in the shortlist for the coveted Tes FE awards, in the categories ‘Outstanding use of Technology in Delivering Online Teaching and Learning’ and ‘Training Provider of the Year’. ELATT has a long and successful history at the Tes Awards, having become the first independent training provider to win the top prize for ‘Training Provider of the Year’ in 2016, as well as the award for Contribution to the Local Community in 2018, and awards for Overall FE Provider and Employer Engagement.
ELATT CEO Anthony Harmer said, “We are extremely proud to be shortlisted for these awards, especially in such an unprecedented and unpredictable year. The new category recognising online delivery is of particular importance to us because we quickly adopted a 'new-normal' business as usual attitude and have ensured teaching and learning continued online, with live lessons delivered by our dedicated tutors. Being shortlisted for these awards is a very fitting testament to our hard-working staff and students alike.”
Tes head of FE Julia Belgutay said: “Further education providers have excelled in what has been a truly challenging year, and the amazing individuals, teams and institutions on our Tes FE Awards shortlist showcase that. Our judges were highly impressed with the calibre of entries and I want to congratulate everyone who has made the shortlist – it is a brilliant achievement"
Sixth form student Adnan said, "It's been a lifesaver learning online with ELATT during the lockdowns”. Former student Maryam said, "when I was lost and confused, ELATT guided me step by step in the right direction. They are a friendly team that will support you wholeheartedly to make your dreams come true"
Winners will be announced at the online awards ceremony on Friday 28th May, which promises to be the year’s biggest celebration of FE and skills, bringing together exceptional teachers, leaders, providers and behind-the-scenes teams.
