Virtual School Kent Awards Nominations 2021 Are Open!

Posted on by Jane Charlton

Virtual School Kent are delighted to announce that nominations for this years awards for Kent Children and Young People in Care and Care Leavers are open and we encourage you to nominate young people for an Award.

We are remaining hopeful that we will be able to meet up with young people in September and October to celebrate their achievements this year in person, however if this does not prove possible, we will still find ways to celebrate their achievements. So please make a nomination yourself and help us encourage colleagues and schools to make a nomination to ensure that we share and celebrate our young people’s achievements and that they do not miss out on the opportunity of being recognised and rewarded.

You can nominate young people from Early Years to Year 13+ using the VSK Awards 2021 nomination form

Award Categories this year are:

  • Outstanding or greatly improved academic achievement
  • Outstanding or greatly improved engagement and/or attitude towards learning
  • Outstanding contribution to the education, training, or employment placement
  • Outstanding contribution to the community
  • Wider achievements of note

The deadline to make a nomination for Early Years and Year R to Year 11 is Friday 30 July 2021.

The deadline to make a nomination for Year 12, Year 13 and for our Care Leavers is Friday 27 August 2021.

As in previous years we will not be able to accept any nominations after this date.
