How to Motivate & Reward

During my career in education, both teaching and in school support, I've many reward and encouragement schemes based around awarding certificates.
All or most were school-made, usually photocopied on to pastel-coloured paper.
The quality of what we present to children in recognition of their efforts and achievement indicates sends out a message.


I have been working with the innovative print & mail company CentrePrint.

They have come up with a service which enables schools to create professional-quality reward certificates, printed in colour on 200gsm card, complete with
YOUR SCHOOL BADGE and NAME.

You can choose wording, typeface, font sizes and colours etc. You can save and download draft versions for pre-purchase inspection.
