We are now reviewing with McDonald's our partners in the award, and AGIT, the governor training network providing the professional support, whether the award scheme should continue, and if so, in what form? Has it now achieved as much as it is likely to, or does the annual prospect of an award provide an important incentive? Would a more local focus, with perhaps authority or regional award winners, raise the profile of reports and those who are striving to improve them? If you have any suggestions or views on the future of The TES Annual Report Award, please write to Bob Doe, The TES, 66-68 East Smithfield, London E1 9XY.
