Hartpury to sponsor ‘Inspiring Learning’ category at No Child Left Behind Awards

NLCB Awards 2023

Hartpury University and Hartpury College will support the No Child Left Behind Awards 2024 by sponsoring the ‘Inspiring Learning’ category. This will be the third time Hartpury has sponsored the event.

The awards ceremony will take place at Cheltenham Town Hall on Thursday 1 February 2024, and will once again be a celebration of those organisations, groups and services that have made a difference to children, young people and families in Cheltenham, especially those living in poverty or facing hardship.

As a leading provider of education and training, Hartpury University and Hartpury College are dedicated to fostering a culture of inspiration, creativity and innovation within the learning environment. By sponsoring the Inspiring Learning category at the No Child Left Behind Awards, Hartpury aims to recognise and celebrate the individuals and initiatives that are making a real difference in enhancing the learning experiences of children and young people.

Stuart Emmerson, Director of Business Development at Hartpury University and Hartpury College said: "It's our great privilege to sponsor this truly inspirational category at the No Child Left Behind Awards 2024. We believe that every child deserves the opportunity to be inspired, to learn, and to reach their full potential, and we’re excited to be part of an event that recognises those who are driving positive change in the education sector.”

The NCLB project was established in 2018 following an assessment that around 4,400 children were living in poverty in Cheltenham. The analysis showed that, when compared to their more affluent peers, these children faced significant challenges such as poorer educational attainment, higher rates of school exclusion, and poorer mental and physical health.

NCLB works with partners to deliver training and education opportunities, host free events, and raise awareness of issues affecting children such as criminal exploitation and healthy eating. The organisation frequently links up with big national campaigns as well as supporting those locally with issues directly affecting the community. For the third year, is working in partnership with Cheltenham Borough Council to raise money and awareness for the campaign.
