After a fantastic week of coverage celebrating transformational teaching on BBC One’s The One Show the 2021 Pearson National Awards are open.  

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.   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.

The 2021 Awards are your chance to celebrate excellence in your school or college. 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.

You can read about our categories and enter the Awards here.

Please note entries can only be made by colleagues in schools or agencies working closely with the school.  If you are a parent,  student or family member wishing to enter a teacher please complete the thank a teacher form here.
