Experienced and committed Educate Plus members are recognised for their contribution to the industry and the organisation by the awarding of a Fellowship. These special awards are made biennially.

It  is a wonderful organisation and I have been so very well supported and feel fortunate to be part a of such a collegiate and inclusiveness professional community. This is one of the hallmarks of its success.
