Nominations for the engage in their future 2024 National Awards can be submitted now!


The Engage in their future National Awards is a scheme that celebrates the amazing progress and achievements of students at the national network of member schools, inviting staff to submit nominations in recognition of their students’ accomplishments.

There are nine core categories available which recognise all types of progress and achievement –

  • Outstanding Personal Progress

  • Outstanding Achievement

  • Outstanding Personal Resilience

  • Good Citizen Award

  • Innovation and Creativity

  • Team of the Year

  • Sports Student/s of the Year

  • Leavers Success Story

  • International Award

Further information for each award can be found at the bottom of the page.

Judging is undertaken by an independent panel that take the individual circumstances of each child into account. The journey through SEMH education is unique to each student with each one at a different stage of their own personal journey. Acknowledging the context of the student’s accomplishments and progress is therefore essential to making sure each nomination is judged on its own merits, not against generic benchmarks or expected standards.

All nominees receive a certificate and those that are short-listed are invited to attend the annual National Awards Ceremony to be presented with their trophy.

If you’d like to see just how powerful the National Awards is, please take a few moments to view the highlight video from a National Awards Ceremony.


The closing date for nominations is 5pm on Monday 25th March 2024.
