nasen Awards

All the latest information and announcements for the annual nasen awards celebratory ceremony and dinner 

Each year, nasen are host to an annual awards campaign, which looks to celebrate the achievements of individual and organisations within the SEND sector. Each year we round off the campaign with a special banqueting ceremony, which takes place in October, in central London.

However, due to the current circumstances surrounding Covid-19 we have decided to cancel this year’s ceremony.

This year we have received a record number of nominations from across the globe, and so to ensure that these organisations and individuals get the recognition they deserve, we will be moving our celebration online. This will include a video announcement of this year’s winners on a dedicated page below and a social media campaign using #nasenwinners2020.

We will keep you up to date with the latest news on the awards but if you have any questions please email the team here.


We host these awards every year, and upon entry there are some common features of practice which we would expect to see evidenced across all 13 categories. These features are:

  • inclusive leadership and governance which would be visible at every tier in an organisation
  • a collaborative approach to working
  • productive engagement with the full community of the organisation
  • innovation
  • a commitment to sharing effective practice beyond own organisation
