TJ Awards entries up 30 per cent on 2012 figures
The TJ Awards 2013 are up 30 per cent on the 2012 figures and marks the eighth year of growth in the popularity of the awards.
This year, new areas were added to the 2013 programme: mentoring and organisational development both of which had a strong number of entries and the commercial and training partnership categories remained the most popular groups. The biggest growing category for 2013 was for Best L&D Professional of the Year with entries rising by 200 per cent on 2012.
The awards are judged by an independent panel of judges and the shortlist will appear in the September edition of TJ. The shortlisted candidates will be notified in late August and will be required to attend for interview in London during September and October.
TJ's director of research and awards coordinator Debbie Carter said: "The growth in the awards again this year demonstrates the growing reach of the programme and supports the ethos of the TJ community which is all about supporting best practice in learning, and organisational development.
"As the awards' programme grows, as well as celebrating the very best in our profession, it gives TJ the insight into organisations and their L&D activity to help inform our editorial content, workshop offerings and conference programmes."
The 16 winners will be announced at a glittering Gala Dinner at The Brewery, London on Wednesday 27th November.
