EADT Business Awards: Director of the Year finalists named

24th August 2023

The finalists for the EADT Business Awards 2023 have been announced, and here we'll find out more about this year's Director of the Year finalists, sponsored by Churchmanor Estates.

James Tweed is CEO of Newmarket-based digital learning company Coracle, which provides inmates at 86 prisons in England and Wales with access to education.

Coracle is one of the few companies permitted by the Ministry of Justice and HM Prisons and Probation Service to provide prisoners with laptops for education. Its tech platform allows prisoners to safely access content from organisations such as The Open University and Prison Education Trust without using the internet.

The judges felt that James is “on a mission to tackle the digital skills gap”. They noted his “support for his team and their wellbeing” and said that “James’ passion for his mission is clear and he was truly inspiring to listen to”.
