‘Supporting children and young people to access education’ which helps schools to quickly alert Dorset Council when children are missing out on full time education has been shortlisted for two national awards.
The project is in the running for the Digital Leaders 100 Awards in the Digital Public Service Innovation of the Year category. It is also shortlisted for the Cabinet Office Smarter Working Awards in the Technology category under ‘Small Scale Project’.
Digitalising the reporting process for schools has meant that the council can now identify families in need of support quicker.
Cllr Andrew Parry, portfolio holder for Children, Education and Early Help, Dorset Council said, “It’s great to see recognition at a national level for this digital project which is helping our vulnerable children. Colleagues from across the organisation have been working together on this, so congratulations to everyone involved.”
Dorset Council has three finalists in the Digital Leaders 100 Awards and you can vote for all three at the same time. But please be quick as voting closes at 12 noon this Friday 28 August.
You can vote for Digital skills and awareness and also ‘Supporting children and young people in Dorset’ to access education in the Digital Public Service Innovation category.
