We are proud to announce that we have been shortlisted as finalists for the 2021 ERA Awards.


Supplier of the Year

The National College, operating under the National Education Group, has been recognised for the outstanding level of support we have provided to schools throughout the COVID-19 pandemic and how we have consistently demonstrated excellence in product standards and education services.

Secondary Resource or Equipment of the Year

In addition, our dedicated Learning Hub has been shortlisted for ‘Secondary Resource or Equipment: Tools for Leadership, Management & Assessment’. This award celebrates the innovative nature of our hub as well as the impact it has had on staff professional development and whole school CPD management.

Our Managing Director, Joe Stoney, said:

“These last 12 months have been difficult for everyone and so it’s brilliant to be shortlisted for not only the Supplier of the Year award but also for Secondary Resource or Equipment of the Year at the 2021 Education Resource Awards.

We saw a huge demand for our services as schools struggled to keep on top of policy updates from the DfE and keep staff up to date. It has meant we’ve worked harder than ever to improve what we do, delivering it faster, smarter and with some of the most trusted voices in education, with the ultimate aim of supporting the whole school workforce during unprecedented times.

We invested heavily in our infrastructure and our Learning Hub now provides schools with an all-in-one CPD solution – combining access to high-quality, expert-led CPD together with a bespoke learning management system which enables advanced usability and reporting features.

Being shortlisted as finalists in both categories is wonderful achievement and acknowledges how much dedication, commitment and passion the whole team have put into the last year.”

The education resource awards recognise and celebrate companies who have adapted to meet the needs of schools today, and how they can help schools to support staff and customers during the COVID-19 crisis.

Winners will be announced on Friday 21st May.
