Last Thursday (10th October 2019) Havering Education Services (HES) were announced as SILVER AWARD winners at the UK Customer Experience Awards 2019 (CXA) in the Product or Service Development category.
CXA is a national awards programme that recognises organisations and individuals who strive to enhance their customer experience through innovative means. The awards celebrated its tenth anniversary this yesterday and spans across industries with large organisations such as Aldi, Sky, O2, and DHL all being shortlisted for the awards.
It was incredible to have been supported on the day by two of our schools: Corbets Tey Special School and Hornchurch Academy Trust and their respective Business Managers, Susan Cumbers and Jo Sladden who attended the event and co-presented to the panel of judges with us.
HES’ award win is an important achievement and is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our teams and a thriving partnership model that is helping to enhance our offer to schools and settings.
