Portsmouth Education Partnership wins Innovative Project of the Year

On 4th May, Gemma Gwilliam attended the Edufuturists awards in Leeds on behalf of the Portsmouth Education Partnership, following the Portsmouth: The Digital City project being shortlisted for innovative project of the year.  

These awards celebrate individuals, groups and schools/colleges, who are truly thinking outside the box when exploring the future of education. They recognise the fact that it takes a tribe or (as their logo shows) a wolf pack to make a difference. That you need to cause disruption to the norm and change the mould to improve outcomes and support our children in the future.

Gemma said “Despite being in such a strong category, we are pleased to announce that our project has won its first award and it wouldn’t be possible without the work of everyone involved so thank you to everyone who has made this possible. It’s been recognised for how our city-wide approach to improving outcomes can really bring about change for our children and their families. It’s brought awareness for how effective collaboration and a shared vision can innovate the world that we live in. It’s put Portsmouth on the map with other cities now wanting to look at how they can come together as one and we look forward to sharing our journey with them.”
