The most outstanding individuals and institutions that the FE sector has to offer have been recognised in the shortlist for the 2019 Tes FE Awards.
Elatt has been shortlisted for the Training Provider of the Year award. Elatt have been shortlisted for these awards every year for the last four years. Elatt is based in Haggerston and delivers English, IT and a range of programmes for young people and adults, including refugees and migrants across five London boroughs. Elatt previously won Training Provider of the Year in 2016 as well as awards for Overall FE Provider and Employer Engagement. Last year Elatt won the award for Contribution to the Local Community.
Tes FE editor Stephen Exley said:
“Excellent practice exists right across the further education sector, and those shortlisted for the Tes FE Awards are the cream of the crop. Our judges were extremely impressed with the calibre of entries. We had more entries for this year’s categories than ever before, and the standard was higher than ever. To be shortlisted is an extraordinary achievement.”
Elatt Senior Life Skills Tutor and Project Lead Tammela Platt explains
“It is important to recognise that charities play an important part in further education, too; that's why the Tes Awards are important for us. At Elatt, our range of funding means that we can provide free courses for many learners who would not be eligible, or not have the finances, to study at a college. At Elatt, we offer many different points of entry for our adult learners, which makes us able to place learners in the most suitable setting. The Tes Awards help raise Elatt's profile and thus the profile of other charity training providers.”
Lola, a current ESOL student said
“I like ELATT because I feel confident here. There is more communication between the students in English because people are from many different countries”.
Georgia, a former 16-19 student said
“they support you and they actually want you to succeed. I’ve always been determined, but now, thanks to ELATT, I have a real pride in myself.”
The winners will be revealed at a gala awards evening at the Grosvenor House Hotel, Park Lane, London on Friday 22 March 2019
