Our first annual THAT Staff Awards celebrates the fantastic work that our Trust staff do every day.
On Thursday 7th July, The Howard Academy Trust held their first annual THAT Staff Awards. Our Staff Awards are our opportunity to highlight some of the outstanding work that goes on throughout our academies over the course of the school year, and commemorate the fantastic staff that make it happen. Staff can be nominated in a number of categories, which have been chosen to ensure we can showcase all staff within our Trust, no matter their job role.
Following a staggering 650 nominations from members of our Trust community (including staff, parents, carers and pupils), nominees were shortlisted through an incredibly difficult process, with nominations for hundreds of members of staff in each category. Shortlisted nominees were invited to join us for a celebration at Commissioner's House in The Historic Dockyard, Chatham, and treated to welcome drinks and hors d'oeuvres, as well as charcuterie boards and desserts during the evening.
All shortlisted nominees received a prize and certificate, and winners were awarded an engraved trophy.
We also used the evening as an opportunity to celebrate our long-standing members of staff with Long Service Awards, and to congratulate some of our newest staff on the completion of the first year of their ECT Induction Programme.
The entire evening, from venue hire, catering and decorations, to trophies and prizes, were fully funded by our sponsors.
You can see more pictures from the evening, discover who won each award, and find out about our sponsors, on the Staff Awards page of our website: https://www.thatrust.org.uk/staffawards
We are already eagerly looking forward to our second Trust Awards next year!
