Nominations Open for the 2024 SkillsHouse Careers & Technical Education Awards!

Do you know a young person who has had a really great year and deserves to be recognised for the skills they have developed?  Have they made huge headway in their learning, or shown particular commitment to personal development?  Or maybe a teacher, lecturer or business has gone the extra mile when creating opportunities for young people.

By nominating them for a SkillsHouse CTE award, this will show them that their achievements haven’t gone unnoticed. The stand out nominations / shortlistees will even be invited to the awards ceremony on Tuesday 25th June 2024, where they might scoop a prestigious award!

Working with both schools and employers, SkillsHouse CTE provide meaningful information about skills, job sectors and associated activities, which leads to a greater understanding of the District’s career and employment needs and in turn, more focused career planning. 

Now in their fifth year, the awards aim to celebrate young people’s engagement, growth and their achievements in learning, but also the educators and businesses who have been vital in encouraging them along the way.

The deadline to make your nomination is Sunday 28 April 2024. This year’s award categories are:

  • Learner of the Year. Essential Skills
  • Learner of the Year. Industry Sector Award
  • Primary Awards
  • Clean Growth Champions
  • Educator of the Year
  • Outstanding Business Contribution

Councillor Imran Khan, Bradford Council’s portfolio holder for Education, Employment and Skills, said: 

“So much has been achieved by our young people across the District this year and what better way to celebrate this than through the SkillsHouse Careers and Technical Education Awards.

“This year’s awards were the biggest yet and I would like to personally congratulate all the finalists on their amazing achievements.

“It has given everyone the opportunity to reflect back on the amazing things they have accomplished this year.

“It is fundamental that we continue to nurture the excellent relationships we have with local businesses through the SkillsHouse Careers & Technical Education Partnership to ensure we are providing our young people with the skills they need to unlock their potential.”
