Herts for Learning (HfL) has just been announced as a finalist in the 2018 Hertfordshire Business Awards.
Following the judging of the Awards, organised by Archant, HfL has been voted onto the shortlist in the ‘Large Business of the Year’ category.
The Hertfordshire Business Awards 2018 seek to unearth the dynamic companies, pioneering entrepreneurs and the visionary and ambitious leaders, who are breaking boundaries and showcasing innovation.
Judges in the large business category looked for evidence of an outstanding business with a turnover in excess of £15m whose growth, ambition and quality of management has enabled it to deliver on a compelling business strategy.
Shortlisting for the award was based on a detailed submission document which evidenced strategic planning, business performance and employment practices. Over the coming weeks, the judging panel will visit each of the finalists who will have the opportunity to further showcase and demonstrate the impact of their work. The winner will be announced at an Awards ceremony at Knebworth Park on 22nd November.
HfL was a finalist in the same category in the 2016 Hertfordshire Business Awards.
Commenting on the shortlisting, Andrew de Csilléry, Managing Director of Herts for Learning, said:
“We are all absolutely delighted to have been shortlisted for the award for Large Business of the Year in the prestigious Hertfordshire Business Awards 2018. To be nominated as finalists is testament to the hard work and dedication of all of our staff in Herts for Learning, but also to Hertfordshire schools, who have worked with us and supported us since our launch in 2013.
“Herts for Learning is committed to providing a great education for all children, wherever they live and whatever their circumstances, and this is clearly demonstrated through the impact of our business strategy, the development of our staff as well as our education and business products and services and our strong growth over the past five years.
“We look forward to continuing to support schools and educational settings across Hertfordshire and further afield to deliver that great education for all children whilst also addressing the well-documented challenges that they face.”
