Speaker's School Council Award Scheme launches
Parliament's Education Service has just launched an award scheme for School Councils which has been sponsored by the Speaker, John Bercow.
The Speaker's School Council Award Scheme is a new national initiative to celebrate the achievements of school councils, including student and learner councils in colleges.
School councils and their co-ordinators can sign up for the scheme via an online application process where they will be asked to nominate their most effective, engaging and ambitious project to date. The first stage of the scheme, though, is to register your school's interest in submitting an application for the Speaker's award.
Deadline to register your interest is 17 March.
