The work we do wouldn’t be possible without the help of our supporters. We’re grateful to all of you for helping us to spread the word about the Pearson National Teaching Awards, ensuring that as many teachers as possible can benefit from the awards.

With the 2021 Pearson National Teaching Awards now open, we’ve created this guide featuring everything you need to market the awards on your social media channels and email marketing platforms.

Our supporter guide can be found below, containing an overview of the awards, a list of awards categories, contact information and an overview of all assets we can provide.
