PIEoneer Awards Success For Summer Boarding Courses

We are delighted to announce that Summer Boarding Courses (SBC) has won an internationally acclaimed education award.

Last month, SBC was presented with the ‘Secondary Learning International Impact Award’ at the PIEoneer Awards Ceremony at London’s Guildhall.

Summer Boarding Courses Wins International Education Award

Over 400 international education professionals gathered together to recognise and celebrate innovation and excellence across the international education industry.

Judged by a panel of 26 education specialists from around the world, the PIEoneer Awards are the only international education awards that celebrate innovation and achievement across the entire industry.

SBC received the award for delivering first-class teaching with unrivalled support, and it is this winning combination, that helps prepare students for further study overseas and the global workforce.

The PIEoneer Awards are run by The PIE News – Professionals in International Education, one of the leading news media outlets in international higher education. The awards which celebrate innovation and achievement in international education, seek to recognise both individuals and organisations who are pushing professional standards, evolving their engagement, or redefining the international experience.

Sam Holderness, Director at Summer Boarding Courses commented on the awards:

“We are honoured to be recognised internationally for providing an exceptional student experience and preparing the next generation of global citizens for success after school. The award is the result of hard work and a passion for the delivery of outstanding teaching and student support across our summer schools. It illustrates SBC’s success in redefining the international student experience.”

The PIEoneer Awards said the following about our entry:

“Summer Boarding Courses develops personalised relationships with its students and their parents. Its quality focus saw it receive a point of strength for every category in the 2018 British Council accreditation inspection. They tailor their curriculum and literature towards accessibility, and regularly seeks student input and undertakes rigorous staff training to ensure they stay ahead of the game.”

Gianluca Polidori, who is part of the wider SBC & Dukes Education family, collected the award on behalf of SBC at the third annual awards ceremony on Thursday 19th September.
