Nord Anglia Education, the world’s leading premium international schools organisation, announced today that it is a sponsor of the Pearson National Teaching Awards in the United Kingdom.
Reflecting its leadership in technology-enabled education, Nord Anglia Education is sponsoring the award for ‘Digital Innovator of the Year’, which recognises educators’ innovative use of technology to significantly improve teaching and learning outcomes.
With more than 10,000 educators teaching in 69 schools around the world, Nord Anglia is also pleased to sponsor the award for ‘Teacher of the Year in a Secondary School’, celebrating outstanding secondary school teachers in the UK. Silver award winners will celebrate at the House of Commons later this year, while Gold award winners will be announced in October at a prestigious award ceremony and on the BBC’s The One Show.
In addition to these two awards, Nord Anglia Education is also supporting the National ‘Thank-a-Teacher’ Day in June, where students, parents and public figures are encouraged to thank educators who have made a big difference in their lives through the Thank a Teacher Campaign. The Silver Award winners will also be announced in schools across the UK on ‘Thank-a-Teacher Day’.
Andrew Fitzmaurice, Chief Executive Officer of Nord Anglia Education, said:
“Our support for the Teaching Awards is an excellent way to recognise and celebrate the talent and commitment of teachers in a year when education has mattered more than ever. While Nord Anglia now has 69 schools in 29 countries, we began life nearly 50 years ago in the north of England, and many of the educators in our schools started their teaching careers in the UK.”
Mary Palmer, Chief Executive Officer, The Teaching Awards Trust, said:
“Nord Anglia is an international education success story. As leaders in technology-enabled teaching and learning, they are ideally placed to sponsor the award for ‘Digital Innovator of the Year’ alongside our ‘Teacher of the Year in a Secondary School’ award. It’s wonderful to see them showing their support for teachers in the country where it all started for them.”
