Star comedian Jo Brand unveiled as host of TES FE Awards 2014

9th February 2014 at 11:50

With just three weeks to go until the winners are announced of the TES FE Awards, anticipation in the sector is building.

For those lucky enough to have a ticket to the awards presentation on 28 February at The Park Plaza Westminster Bridge Hotel in London, there's even more reason to get excited: Jo Brand has been announced as the host of the evening.

Jo, who last month was awarded an honorary degree by Canterbury Christ Church University, has become one of the country's most recognisable comics. She worked in psychiatric nursing for a decade before her comedy career flourished. She has won a Bafta for best female performance in a comedy role, as well as four titles at the British Comedy Awards.

As well as performing her deadpan style of stand-up comedy, Jo will help present awards to the winners of all our categories, including the Most Innovative Teacher of the Year, FE Leader of the Year and FE Provider of the Year gongs.
