The search is on to find the hidden STARs

The STAR Awards, which recognises and rewards the inspirational people within learning and skills, has moved into its third year with nominations for 2006 now well under way. This year ConstructionSkills is demonstrating its commitment to training by sponsoring one of the prize categories.

The Award seeks to identify those who have worked above and beyond expectations, making a difference to the lives of the six million learners who are currently studying in the sector. It is these teachers, trainers, managers and support staff who help to raise the quality of provision in the post-16 sector and who are key to encouraging learners to achieve their full potential.

ConstructionSkills is encouraging employers to make your employees, managers and learners aware of the Awards and the benefits that can be gained by nominating. Being part of the STAR Awards does not only raise the profile of individual nominees, but it can also have beneficial effects on the morale of a whole organisation. Colleagues and learners share in the rewards and recognition a STAR Award nomination can bring, whist organisations often benefit from local, regional and even national press interest and attention.

This year there are seventeen prize categories for nomination, with ConstructionSkills sponsoring the Outstanding Work-Based Learning Practioner award. Perhaps you can think of an exceptional trainer or assessor who deservers to be recognised for the impact they have had on your learners and ultimately on your business? STARs should inspire, motivate and encourage learners to succeed.

To nominate, learn more about the Awards or for further information visit the STAR Awards website or call the freephone Helpline on 0800 652 0528. Nominating is quick and easy, with a very simple form to complete. All nominations will also be considered for a Special Recognition prize, which will be presented at the ceremony, to reward good equality and diversity practice.

Nominations close at midnight on 21 April.
