For the last six years, the Education Business Awards have been recognising the outstanding achievements of primary and secondary schools from all sectors. The 2012 event, sponsored by RM Education, will once again take place at the Emirates Stadium, London, and will look identify examples of best practice, and uncover evidence of the hard word and dedication taking place every day in schools across the UK.
Hot on the heels of the Centre for Policy’s report on the UK’s litigious culture curbing educational trips, October will see teachers and adventurers, travel, legal and safety experts congregate at the annual Stretching Horizons’ conference to discuss some of the ways schools can enrich education, mitigate risk and raise funds for educational journeys with a view to changing lives. The conference will also announce the winners of the forum’s Educational Journey of the Year (EJOY) Award. From community project work and treks to sports tours and scientific research expeditions, the journeys show that boundaries can be pushed even in risk averse times. Adrian Ferraro, travel specialist and director of the Stretching Horizons forum, gives us an insider glimpse of the shortlisted finalists.
