AT the 2018 UK Ceremony we celebrated 71 Pearson Teaching Award winners from across the UK. Selected from many thousands of nominations, each one of them has already received the honour of a Silver Teaching Award and 13 went on to win a prestigious Gold Plato.

What made this night even more special is that we were celebrating 20 years of celebrating transformational teaching.  Lord Puttnam set these awards up to celebrate and recognise excellence in education and to honour the dedication and hard work of teachers. This is needed more than ever, and we are delighted to be here and still going strong.

The fact that we receive so many nominations speaks volumes about how influential a great teacher is on the lives of the young people they inspire.
