Sixteen winners from across the UK’s schools and colleges have been honoured in the 2023 Pearson Teaching Awards for their dedicated work in education.

Nine winners were presented their gold awards at a glitzy ceremony in London on Saturday, with another seven revealed during the week on the BBC’s The One Show.

Awards were presented last night by TV presenter Gaby Roslin, who also presented the first awards in 1999.

Now in their 25th year, the awards celebrate the best teaching across the UK and thousands of nominations were received for the gold award winners.

Education secretary Gillian Keegan said: “The impact of a teacher on a child’s life can be immeasurable – I know it was for me. I am so grateful to all the staff in our schools and colleges for everything they do.

“Teachers change lives and we should all feel a sense of gratitude to those we are celebrating today. Thank you again and congratulations.”

Sharon Hague, Pearson UK’s managing director of schools, added: “The hard work that goes into teaching and showing up for students day in and day out cannot be underestimated. Congratulations to all winners and thank you for your continuous efforts.”
