Palmers backs education awards

Essex-based law firm Palmers Solicitors is proud to announce that it is sponsoring a category of the inaugural Thurrock Education Awards.

Taking place on Friday 28 November 2014 at The Backstage Centre in Purfleet, the awards aim to recognise and celebrate excellence in the borough’s schools.

There are 14 award categories for teachers, head teachers, school teams, support staff and governing bodies that have shown a passion for sharing their effort, enthusiasm and talent.

Palmers Solicitors is sponsoring the Aspiring Leader category which rewards an individual who has shown commitment and drive to lead. 

BJ Chong, partner at Palmers Solicitors, said: “We chose this award because as a firm, we value being involved in the local community. By working closely with a range of educational establishments over the years, including primary and secondary schools, colleges, third party sponsors, local authorities, trusts and stakeholders, our specialist education team have gained extensive experience of the current issues facing independent schools and academies and those that may arise in the future. Our expertise in this area enables us to advise on all aspects of the legal responsibilities in this broad sector from employment considerations to school governance.”

The closing date for nominations is Friday 19 September 2014 and you can make your nomination at: www.thurrock.gov.uk/education-awards/celebrating-excellence-in-education.
