EDUCATION officers in Sheffield are celebrating after scooping two top national communication awards – for the second year running.
They have picked up first place with two Shine A Light awards, run by the national Communication Trust, for their work to boost communication skills among children.
Sheffield Council’s Every Sheffield Child Articulate and Literate - ESCAL - campaign beat off competition from other local authorities to win the accolades.
Officers won the best communication strategy and team of the year awards – after winning the communication strategy award last year.
The team were presented with the awards by TV presenter Paul Ross at a ceremony in London.
Coun Jackie Drayton, cabinet member for children, young people and families, said: “What a fantastic achievement.”
