Invicta National Academy was delighted to receive a Kent-wide Teacher of the Year award for Dedication to Education at the Kent Teacher of the Year awards last Friday at a fabulous ceremony hosted by Ashford International Hotel.
The awards, which recognised the exceptional dedication shown by teachers and schools across Kent throughout the pandemic, was a life-affirming and inspirational evening for all involved in education and special thanks must go to the whole KM Charity Team for organising it yet again. Record numbers of nominations were received. Seventy prizes were given to inspirational teachers and schools that kept schools open and children receiving live teaching throughout the pandemic.
The whole Invicta National Academy team were honoured and privileged to attend and be recognised for the contribution they have made to ensuring no child in Kent missed out on the opportunity to have live, interactive, online lessons throughout the three national lockdowns.
Cllr Anna Firth, Co-Founder and CEO of Invicta National Academy adds: "The whole Invicta team were just so honoured and delighted to receive this award. Although the last year has been incredibly difficult the education sector has responded magnificently and all at Invicta are so grateful to the KM Charity Team for recognising the many, often unsung, heros in who have innovated and kept children's learning and education going. The past year has been transformational for teachers and schools across Britain. The children have been fantastic and we have shown as a sector that we can innovate and embrace new, modern way of using technology to supplement children's learning. The on-going demand for our free, live, online holiday lessons shows that if we can reach out to families in the right way, there is a huge appetite to help Britain's children catch-up. All at Invicta are dedicated to closing the education gap and making that happen. Listen to our CEO, Anna Firth, live on the night – 11/10/2021
