Wimborne-based Teachers Building Society is pleased to announce that it is sponsoring the award for 'Outstanding School Financial Team or Initiative' at this year's TES Schools Awards.
This new award is aimed at recognising the best finance teams in schools or local education authorities, or the financial institutions and organisations that support them eg banks or financial consultants. Schools can nominate themselves or their financial partner, and financial organisations can simply enter in their own right.
The prestigious TES Schools Awards are designed to recognise and reward excellence and teamwork in education in the UK. The closing date for entries into the awards is 18 March 2011, and the awards will be presented to the winners at a gala luncheon to be held in London on 8 July 2011. Further information can be obtained by visiting www.tes.co.uk/awards.
James Bawa, chief executive of Teachers Building Society, said: "We're delighted to be able to sponsor this important new award, as part of the flagship TES awards scheme for schools and education authorities in the UK. As a key financial provider for those in the teaching profession, this is the perfect way for us to show further support for our customers and recognition for the important work that they do."
