Joseph Gill
  • The Award for Outstanding New Teacher of the Year
  • Willows High School
  • Cardiff/Caerdydd

Joseph’s excellent work has enabled disadvantaged pupils to continue learning despite the pandemic. He has also created and led an integration programme so that children with little or no English, many of whom having experienced trauma in their own countries, can be supported before entering mainstream education. 

He brings learning to life, bringing in tools, construction equipment and gardening utensils in a bid to keep pupils engaged. He also uses his break and lunch times to encourage pupils to play sport, purposefully encouraging different ethnic backgrounds to interact and collaborate.
