Why we are supporting the KM Kent Literacy Awards

Whilst accountancy is often associated with good levels of numeracy, accountants also need to have an excellent level of literacy in order to communicate with their clients and to prepare effective and legible reports. Having good literacy and numeracy are two of the skills we look for when recruiting staff. As specialists in the education sector we are honoured and also feel it is important for us to support this excellent initiative. We look forward to receiving and reading the entries and would like to take this opportunity to wish all applicants good luck with their entries.

What you need to know to take part

Trumpeting skills vital to the next generation

The Kent Literacy Awards will highlight best practice in schools for initiatives that progress reading, writing, speaking and listening skills.  These vital skills are developed through a wide variety of cross-curricular topics, including arts and drama.

The KM Charity team are requesting nominations to showcase initiatives that make a real difference to the success of your school.  The aim is to celebrate what works well in the classroom and help spread that best practice across the county.

Submit a nomination today.  Whether it is the best home reading initiative, most engaging writing topic, most effective use of IT to develop listening skills or best use of art or drama – The KM Charity team want to hear what you are doing in your school.

Nominations are already open and culminate with an awards celebration at Hempstead House Hotel, Sittingbourne on 20 June 2018.

Nominating an initiative or scheme for the KM Kent Literacy Awards is easy – just complete the online form on the KM Kent Charity website

Closing date for nominations is noon on 27 April.

Schools & Academies sector knowledge

We have acted for academy schools since their introduction and we pride ourselves on the wealth of expertise that we have built up in this area. We understand that academy status brings with it additional financial and governance responsibilities with the requirements placed on academies by the Charities Act, the Companies Act, and the Education Funding Agency, being very detailed. Our academies team understands this and provides a supportive hands-on service to help you navigate through the regulatory and reporting requirements of the sector.
