The IET Education resources team were honoured to take home the Educational Resources Award (Secondary) from the Education Business Awards held in London on Wednesday 12 June.

The award, recognising an organisation providing educational resources, products or services which support teaching and increase pupil engagement in the secondary schools sector, had some tough competition with organisations including the Victoria and Albert Museum, Amnesty International, Royal Geographical Society and the European Space Agency all shortlisted.

Holly Margerison-Smith and I were very proud to be at the event representing IET Education where, in front of nearly 200 people, the nominees for each category were announced by presenter Ashley John-Baptiste a BBC broadcast journalist and presenter.

The champagne reception was a special event but the celebrations really got underway during the awards ceremony itself where there were loud cheers and applause from the crowd as the winners collected their awards in turn and smiled for the camera. As it got to the Secondary resource category, Ashely described the winner as “dedicated to STEM subjects providing exceptional engineering resources for teachers…'  and announced The Institution of Engineering and Technology's wealth of educational resources for secondary schools use case studies to showcase some of the most innovative engineering and technology from around the world.

It is just wonderful to get recognition for our teaching resources and hopefully raise awareness to schools not yet using them.

The IET provides educational resources for children aged between 4-16 years, including competitions, posters, videos, podcasts, careers materials and downloadable lesson plans and activities that can be used in the classroom or at home. And are all free from IET Education - STEM activities and resources for primary and secondary schools (theiet.org)
