Educational Progress Awards

Educational Progress Awards 2016

Educational progression is vital if young people are to fulfil their aspirations and improve their life chances. Harlow Council, as community leader, recognises that it has a role to play in supporting young people in achieving educational progression. The awards hosted by Harlow Council’s Chief Executive, Malcolm Morley OBE, who declined a pay increase in 2013/14 to fund the awards as his personal contribution to supporting educational progress in Harlow. The money allocated for the pay increase was put in a budget which will continue to fund the annual awards.

In front of a packed Council Chamber the young people collected their awards from Dame Claire Bertschinger DBE DL. Claire is Director for the Diploma in Tropical Nursing at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. Before the awards Claire shared her inspirational story on how she progressed from school to work life not knowing she was dyslexia.

In 1984, Claire was working as an International Committee of Red Cross field nurse located in Ethiopia during the famine, running a feeding centre. When a BBC news crew appeared with reporter Michael Buerk, Claire gladly told her story to highlight the problems. It was this report that inspired Sir Bob Geldof and Midge Ure to create Band Aid to raise money for Ethiopian famine relief.

Each young person was given a framed certificate and gift vouchers to mark their achievement. Trophies were presented to winning schools.
