The Pearson Teaching Awards

Celebrating transformational teaching

Gold Winners


Silver Plato

In 2017 Thank a Teacher Day was Friday 16th June. On the day we announced the winners of the prestigious Silver Pearson Teaching Awards – teachers, headteachers, teaching assistants and lecturers from  schools and colleges across England, Ireland and Wales. Silver Award winners went on to the UK final of the Pearson Teaching Awards, a glittering ceremony held in central London on 22nd October. when the winners of 11 Gold Plato Awards, the UK’s “Oscars for Teachers” were announced.

The Pearson Teaching Awards are an annual celebration of exceptional teachers, created to recognise the life-changing impact an inspirational teacher can have on the lives of the young people they teach.

We’d love to hear your stories – which teacher would you thank and why? Share with us on facebook  and twitter. And if you’re a teacher who’s received a Teaching Awards Thank You card why not share a photo too? We look forward to hearing from you!
