Diggerland Sponsor The Kent Teacher of the Year Awards

Diggerland School Trips in Kent are always a popular choice to local schools because we provide educational benefits as well as a unique experience at a Theme Park like no other!

Not only do pupils AND teachers have a fantastic time, but Diggerland Adventure Park can be just as educational as we allow students and club & group members to get practical experience of what it is like being 180 & 360 excavators operators and dumper and backhoe-loader drivers.

Additionally, they will also gain an idea of some of the dangers and hazards of working on a construction site with or near large heavy-plant, allowing teachers to explain the importance of knowing and following Health & Safety procedures in a workplace and other practices.

Diggerland school trips are available at all four UK parks located in Kent, Devon, Durham and Yorkshire meaning that schools all over the UK can enjoy the thrills of Diggerland whilst learning important subjects too.

Do you know a teaching member of staff that deserves all the recognition possible for their hard work and dedication? The Kent Teacher of the Year Awards understands the importance of praising our teachers of today and all that they do for the community, which is why Diggerland are so proud to be sponsors.

This year, fifty finalists attended the prestigious event and celebrated its 14th year with a delightful awards dinner run by the KM Charity Team, so we’re in no doubt that 2018’s event will be even bigger and better!

To name just a few, the categories include primary, secondary, newly qualified teacher, non teaching member of staff i.e. dinner ladies and caretakers as well as a volunteer award which is dedicated to members of the PTA and school governors.

UK Marketing Manager, Sherene Garvin-Mack said “All of us at Diggerland are absolutely thrilled to be sponsoring the Kent Teacher of the Year Awards. The staff within our Kent schools all work exceptionally hard to make the lives of young people better and we at Diggerland feel it is extremely important to recognise that hard work. Diggerland is a great way for schools to learn and have fun at the same time which is why we run School Trips in Kent”.

Entries for nominations open January 2018 and end on the 8th March 2018, so if you know someone extremely deserving of an award, please do put them forward for the Kent Teacher of the Year Awards!
