Becoming an accredited SIMS support team is an achievement that should be celebrated.
Once a team achieves accreditation, they are presented with an award and this occasion can be used by the team to highlight their achievement both internally and externally if they wish. The presentation is also an ideal time to give the winning school the survey prize - an android tablet.
The new accreditation award is an acrylic encapsulation designed to showcase the team's achievement.
