Cambridge Education, the specialist education arm of management, development and engineering consultancy Mott MacDonald, has won the Consultant of the Year category at the 2010 Education Investor Awards, which took place on 16 November at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London, UK.
Cambridge Education’s Marie Boyd-Clarke collected the award which was given for Cambridge Education’s work across the education sector, exemplified with the selection of two Building Schools for the Future (BSF) projects in Tower Hamlets and Sandwell and one in Bournemouth and Poole from over 30 projects delivered to date.
For the BSF project in Tower Hamlets, Cambridge Education drove educationally led design with an innovative forum of architect practices. Whereas the Sandwell BSF project involved delivering change management and using the innovative Web 2 software tool to record, share and scale the system to all staff and students. Meanwhile another of Cambridge Education’s software tools, the Activity Modeller, was used to translate styles of learning and teaching into schedules of accommodation in the Bournemouth and Poole BSF programme.
The award judges were impressed with the depth of sector knowledge displayed, the breadth of expertise demonstrated and the significant contribution Cambridge Education is making both in the UK and internationally.
Cambridge Education executive director Marian Brooks said, “This award reflects the outstanding quality of service Cambridge Education offers to clients. We have developed a wide range of innovative tools and practices to support educational transformation, improving outcomes for young people and providing value-for-money.”
“This award is a great reflection of all the hard work we put into our projects. This is also an excellent reward for our successful team working across the various disciplines of both Cambridge Education and our wider parent Group, Mott MacDonald,” Marian added.
