Scott Wieprecht, Community School

Scott is an exceptional teacher who is driven by the desire to provide young people with opportunities that build their self-confidence and self-belief in order for them to fulfil their full potential in life. Before he qualified as a teacher he set up a theatre company for children which he still runs and he regularly arranges educational trips and runs projects which have resulted in exciting opportunities such as students presenting on the local radio and making presentation to industry. He was nominated by students who said, “he uses different technologies to make learning fun and it is really paying off!” His talent is such that he works closely with Microsoft, who provide him with support and to whom he provides significant feedback with the aim of improving their product and its application in a learning environment; but best of all, students say, “he makes learning fun”. He is a very worthy winner of this prestigious Award.
