Thank you to everyone who entered a colleague for a 2020 Pearson National Teaching Award. The stories that we have heard from schools and colleges across the UK have been simply inspirational, and our judges had a tremendously difficult task in shortlisting finalists.  

The mission of the Pearson National Teaching Awards is to celebrate and recognise excellence in education, everyone who has been entered for an Award should feel a sense of professional pride that they have been recognised by their colleagues.  Congratulations to everyone who has received a certificate in 2020, we will be celebrating their achievements on 8th July.

Our thanks go to our judges, who are volunteers. These dedicated professionals, the majority of whom are practising teachers and many are Teaching Award winners, give their time to ensure a smooth and credible process for those involved and to help celebrate the amazing people who work in our schools. Judging is an independent and peer-led process, and faced additional challenges this year as all our judging was been carried virtually.

The announcement of Silver Winners planned for mid-June will now take place on 16th September. Details  of the UK Ceremony will be made available when they are confirmed.
