Sep 15, 2020 | Blog, Education, General

We are very proud to have been shortlisted for the Contractor of the Year in the Education Estates 2020 Awards. TG Escapes have been shortlisted along with Willmott Dixon, ISG and BAM Construction.

The awards supported by The Department of Education are to celebrate achievements in developing learning spaces for education. The awards ceremony will take place on the 15th October as part of the Education Estates Digital Week.

Rory Kennedy, Director of Capital, Department for Education (DfE) says:

“The Department for Education is pleased to continue its long-standing involvement in Education Estates®. Our vision is to provide world-class education, training and care for everyone, whatever their background. It will make sure that all children and young people have the chance to reach their potential and live a more fulfilled life. Investment in the school and college estate is crucial to transforming education for thousands of pupils, and the recent announcement by the Prime Minister of an ambitious, ten-year rebuilding programme – along with planned investment in FE colleges being brought forward - represents a step-change in this endeavour.”

The digital conference is complimentary for those directly employed in schools, colleges, universities, government and local authorities (includes governors and independent schools).
