Sponsors for the 2023 National Awards for Pastoral Care in Education, Presentation Event Announced
NAPCE is pleased to announce a partnership with Majesticare as our main sponsor for the Presentation Event of the 2023 National Awards for Pastoral Care in Education.
The presentation event takes place in the splendid setting of the Graeme Hick Pavilion at Worcestershire County Cricket Club in Worcester on Friday 29thSeptember.
Sponsors, judges, NAPCE members, and finalists in the eight categories for the awards will join together to celebrate and value the excellent contributions that are made by people working in pastoral roles that make a positive difference in the learning experience and future life chances of children and young people.
On the evening the winners of the awards in each category will be announced and the plaques and prizes awarded.
NAPCE is proud to work in partnership with Majesticare, who provide exceptional care in their care homes.
They are excellent partners for the awards because they have been providing award winning care in their care homes for over 20 years.
They are considered to be one of the UK’s leading care home providers with beautiful residential, nursing and dementia care homes across Worcestershire, the Home Counties, Buckinghamshire and into Somerset.
Like education, providing care in a care home setting requires a skilled and dedicated workforce to meet the different needs of the people in their care.
Majesticare understand what it means to provide exceptional care with a stimulating and vibrant community for the people in their care.
NAPCE is pleased to be working in partnership with our sponsors of the eight awards categories to raise awareness about the excellent practice in pastoral care in education.
These include The Association of School and College Leaders (ASCL)who represent and support more than 24,000 school leaders. Their members are responsible for the education of more than four million children and young people. They are sponsoring the Raising Awareness about Pastoral Care category.
Other sponsors include the publishers Taylor and Francis (Pastoral Leader of the Year) and Crown House Publishing (Pastoral Development of the Year). Taylor and Francis work in partnership with NAPCE for the publication of the Association’s academic journal ‘Pastoral Care in Education’.
Taylor and Francis is a specialist in scholarly research and in helping academic and research communities make new breakthroughs. They curate, produce and publish scholarly research and research referenced-led content enabling the latest academic thinking and discovery to be shared and built on.
