Inspirational Teaching Award winner Rory Schofield with Sarah Condren of Burnley College.

All the winners from the East Lancashire Education Awards 2022

It was a night to remember for some of the area’s educational superstars at 11th East Lancashire Education Awards.

The ceremony, which were held at Nelson and Colne College, showcases and celebrates the very best pupil, teachers, schools and employees in the area, recognising achievements made within the education sector on a daily basis.

This was the first in-person event since 2019, and Burnley Express editor John Deehan said: “It was fantastic to see so many smiling faces after what has been an incredibly tough two years.

"The way those within the education sector have risen to the challenges posed by the pandemic has been truly inspirational.

“Congratulations to all the winners. The level of competition this year was outstanding and every finalist should be proud of their achievements.

"I would also like to say a big thank you to our sponsors – Nelson and Colne College, Burnley College, Burnley Leisure, Barnfield Construction, Newground Together, and Innovate Her. Without them, these awards would quite simply not happen.”
