On Sunday 21st October we celebrated 20 years of transformational teaching as the Pearson Teaching Awards UK Ceremony 2018 took place at The Brewery, London. It was an opportunity to celebrate all our 2018 Silver Award winners, announce our 2018 Gold winners, and highlight the life-changing work done every day by the whole of the teaching profession.
Our hosts for the evening were journalist and presenter of Wild Escapes and Countryfile, Anita Rani and journalist, radio and TV presenter Sean Fletcher, who helped tell the stories of some inspirational teachers as we honoured the whole profession.
On Sunday 22nd October 2017, 56 Pearson Teaching Awards Silver winners and their guests attended a glittering awards ceremony at The East Wintergarden, London, where the winners of the prestigious Gold Plato Awards were revealed. The ceremony, hosted by BBC Breakfast presenter Naga Munchetty with Countryfile’s Sean Fletcher, was broadcast on BBC TWO as Britain’s Classroom Heroes to honour exceptional teaching professionals from across the UK.
