Call for entries announced for prestigious global education awards
Organisers of the GESS Education Awards are calling on teaching professionals, schools and companies to submit their entries to this year’s edition of the prestigious global recognition programme.
There are two distinct categories of awards that are open for nominations – one honours outstanding achievements by schools, teachers and education professionals; the other recognises suppliers of products and solutions geared for the education market.
Since its inception, the GESS Education Awards have received entries from around the world. For the 2018 edition, entries came from 46 countries including the UK, Denmark, South Africa, Colombia, Pakistan, Australia, Spain, India, Finland, Canada and the United States; as well as countries from the Middle East and Africa, including Kenya where the inaugural GESS Leaders in Education Summit is scheduled to take place this month.
The awards programme is an integral part of GESS Dubai, the premier education exhibition and conference in the Middle East, which is scheduled to take place on 26-28 February 2019 at the Sheikh Saeed Halls of the Dubai World Trade Centre.
GESS Education Awards continues its partnership with leading education school operator Táaleem for the GESS Lifetime Achievement Award which will recognise an individual who has had a significant impact on the education landscape in the Middle East. The winner is selected by a panel of individuals who are leaders in various fields of education.
