2018 SAL Generic banner 

Shine a Light Awards is back for 2018. We are calling on all schools, teams, young people and individuals who champion innovative work and excellent practice in supporting children and young people’s communication development. 

Good communication skills are essential for learning and making friends. Communication is important and has a significant impact on a child’s development. This understanding is the premise in which Pearson in partnership with The Communication Trust, decided to launch the annual Shine a Light Awards.

The Shine a Light Awards is now a flagship event in education and healthcare calendars. In 2011, The Communication Trust and Pearson Assessment, launched the Shine a Light Awards as part of 'Hello', the national year of communication campaign. 

Each year, we ask individuals and organisations to share their approach to innovation and best practice; the impact their work has had and why speech, language and communication needs are important to them. Each year, the Shine a Light Awards, raises the profile and outstanding achievement of more than 30 leading organisations and individuals.
