Our growing range of non-curricular awards support schools to achieve long-term, sustainable school improvement.

Each of our awards are relevant to all schools and educational settings from early years to post-16.

Schools working towards an award undertake a self-evaluation to determine their own starting point. Evidence of good practice already in place will count towards accreditation. Using the award frameworks, schools will develop, improve and embed their practice.

Schools that we work with tell us that they value external recognition for their achievements and that evaluation of existing practice is a powerful tool.
