BCSE Industry Awards Shortlist announced
Following well over a hundred entries, the shortlist for the BCSE Industry Awards was released yesterday.
This is my first year as Chair of Judges, but creating the shortlist took, as you would expect, a number of days and much discussion between two panels, one creating the long list and the other deciding the final short list. The standard of entries, is apparently higher than ever, and certainly there is some fab work happening all round the country in creating outstanding 21st century learning environments. I am really happy to be involved.
Not everyone likes competition, but this is a great way of nationally sharing ideas, resolutions to common design issues and celebrating some exceptional practice. We still don't do enough of this. Many still seem to prefer to continue to work in their own silos and keep good ideas and designs to themselves. Why would we want to do that?
The final Awards will be presented at a dinner in June. To book tickets for this, click here!
