Get your entries in for the CN Group Education and Learning Awards

Entries are already coming in for the 2014 CN Group Education and Learning Awards.

The awards, dubbed the Golden Apples, were launched last week.

They aim to find the stars of education, training and learning across Cumbria and reward excellence and innovation.

There are 19 categories to highlight the achievements of individuals, teams and establishments.

Accolades will include honours for top students, schools and firms as well as praise for unsung heroes such as backroom staff, volunteers and communities.

Specialist categories include the special needs award to recognise those who work with people with disabilities, fit for life highlighting the work to boost children’s physical activity, and a new technology in learning award for innovation.

Meanwhile, the ‘Award for Youth’ looks to recognise the work of coaches, volunteers and people in the wider community who contribute and help people learn outside of the traditional confines of schools, colleges, workshops and universities.

The awards are free to enter and anyone can submit nominations.

The closing date for entries is July 25.

The climax to this year’s awards will be a gala dinner and ceremony at Carlisle Racecourse on Friday, October 3 when the winners will be revealed.

The awards are being supported once again by the University of Cumbria and social enterprise Inspira.

To enter, visit www.cneducationawards.co.uk, call Alison Sisson on 01228 612617 or go in to any Cumbrian Newspapers office.

What faith do you have in rail services in Cumbria improving?

Every. Anything better than what we have currently is an improvement

None. There's little substance to what the Government is saying for the general passenger

It will get better - but only once old trains are taken off the tracks
