R.E.A.L. Education have once again been recognised at the East Midlands Chamber of Commerce Awards.

R.E.A.L. were finalists in the Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Nottinghamshire regions for the ‘Education and Business Partnership’ award and also for the ‘Outstanding Growth’ award in the Nottinghamshire region.

We are delighted to announce that R.E.A.L. Education have been confirmed as the winners of the Leicestershire region ‘Education and Business Partnership’ award and the Nottingham region ‘Outstanding Growth’ award!

Both awards recognise R.E.A.L. Education’s fantastic achievements over the past 12 months. The Outstanding Growth award also highlights the progress R.E.A.L. Education has made since its inception only 10 years ago.

Richard Smith, R.E.A.L. Education’s co-founder said: “We are so proud of everything we have achieved at R.E.A.L. – the ‘Outstanding Growth’ award in a time of uncertainty in the education sector shows the impact we are having locally both in creating jobs and educating young people in need of specialist support.

“It is a very proud moment for us all. Recognition goes to the R.E.A.L. team for their continued efforts in raising aspirations of young people in the East Midlands.”
