The Data Education in Schools team have reached the final of the 2024 British Data Awards. The team have been nominated in the ‘Education Initiative of the Year’ category. Finalists for this award include Admiral Insurance UK, Alliance for Data Science Professionals, Applied Data Science Partners, Corndel, Eden Smith, Education Authority, JLL, Lloyds Banking Group, and Synap.

The British Data Awards is an annual quest to discover and celebrate the UK’s data success stories. Organisations taking part this year range from FTSE 100 heavyweights, public sector pioneers, technology unicorns, fast-growing scale-ups, essential Not-For-Profits, and everything in between.

A record 321 entries were received for the fourth edition of the British Data Awards which means that competition to be named a Finalist proved to be particularly tough.

This is the second year in a row that the team have reached the final. In 2023, Kate Farrell (Director of Curriculum Development and Professional Learning) collected the ‘Data for Good Initiative of the Year’ Award on behalf of a UK-wide team, funded by Skills Development Scotland, to develop and test more than 500 new British Sign Language signs covering on the topics of Cyber Security, Computing Science and Data Science.

2024 finalists will be celebrated, and Winners announced, at a special awards ceremony due to take place on the 8th of May at the iconic Great Hall of the Grand Connaught Rooms in Covent Garden, London.
