The Pearson National Teaching Awards are the ‘Oscars’ of the teaching profession.
They were set up to recognise and celebrate excellence in education on a UK-wide basis. Run by the Teaching Awards Trust and supported by Pearson and the BBC, they are the UK’s most prestigious celebration of transformational teaching. The Awards honour exceptional teaching and culminate in a glittering awards ceremony televised by the BBC. Our vision is a teaching profession with high morale and a society that values and celebrates the great work that is done by teachers and leaders in education.
This is your chance to celebrate excellence in your school. It’s easy to enter the awards, and it makes such a difference! Entry is free, and the awards are open to all state and independent schools and FE colleges in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.
