The Teaching Awards Trust - Celebrating 25 Years

In The Teaching Awards Trust’s 25th year our vision remains the same: a society that values and celebrates the great work that takes place in education every day across the UK. We want teaching and support staff across early years, schools and colleges to feel appreciated, celebrated and proud of the work they do and the difference they make. Watch our 25 year highlights video here.

“The Awards are not purely about individuals or groups of teachers. They are, most importantly, about celebrating and recognising whole school communities. From the moment we returned to school, following the Awards Ceremony, children, their families, staff and Governors were buzzing with pride and excitement that their school, had been in the news and on national television” – Past Winner
