SkillsActive is pleased to sponsor the Paul Bonel Special Mention Memorial Award to commemorate the contribution that Paul Bonel, former Head of the Playwork Unit, made to the sector.
Paul worked as a playworker before moving into a development role, supporting and encouraging others to provide opportunities to play.
Following this, he took up his role with SkillsActive, leading the Playwork team in the development of workforce strategy, occupational standards and qualifications.
While at SkillsActive he continued his involvement in the delivery of play services through an active involvement in the management of an adventure playground, never losing touch with the children and young people who benefit from play provision.
The Award is being presented at the 10th Annual Playwork Conference in Eastbourne on 6- 7 March 2012.
SkillsActive will also be at the event, offering workshops on the new level 4 and 5 playwork qualifications at the event and explaining the fascinating world of SIC and SOC codes!

Nominations close Friday 10 February 2012.
