ITEC Awards 2012 – Results


ITEC Awards 26th April 2012 – Results

The annual ITEC Awards for 2012 were held at the Bowers & Pitsea Social Club on Thursday 26th April 2012.  It was an excellent evening and the turn out from learners, parents, friends, family, employers, sponsors and ITEC partners was incredible.  The buffet was plentiful with delicious food supplied by Stephanie and the drinks were club prices… excellent!

As the Chief Executive, I opened the evening and Amanda, our Youth Programmes Manager, announced the finalists, the runner-up and the winner for each category.   (Once we had finally got used to the microphone and I had sorted out my ‘reverb’!)

There was a little sticky point where I had forgotten to give the first few winners their Amazon gift vouchers when they came up to receive their trophies.    I had carefully arranged the trophies and envelopes with winners’ names on my table in the order the trophies were being presented.   The little devils had wedged themselves in the bottom of the envelopes so I didn’t remember they were there until one came out with the winner’s certificate!  Once that was sorted, it was plain sailing.
