Nord Anglia Education once again celebrated ‘Thank A Teacher Day’ as sponsors of this year’s awards. On the 26th of May, recognised as ‘Thank A Teacher Day’ in the UK, the full list of 80 Pearson National Teaching Award Silver Award winners across the country was announced.
The following teachers have been honoured with a Silver Award for 'Teacher of the Year in a Secondary School' and 'Digital Innovator of the Year' for their outstanding commitment to changing the lives of the children they work with every day. Both these awards have been sponsored by Nord Anglia.
Thank you to these amazing teachers!
As Silver Award winners, these teachers have now been shortlisted to win a Gold Award later in the year. Recognition of this once-in-a-lifetime achievement will be broadcast on the BBC’s The One Show as part of a week-long celebration of teaching, which sees famous faces honour award winners every night in the run up to the ceremony. This is a fantastic opportunity to celebrate the exceptional school leaders and teachers who have worked wonders to bring together their local communities despite the challenges of the past few years.
Today, the Silver Award winners are being honoured as part of the wider celebrations for national ‘Thank a Teacher Day’, bringing together everyone across the country to celebrate the schools and colleges at the heart of our communities.
The Pearson National Teaching Awards is an annual celebration of excellence in education, founded in 1998 by Lord David Puttnam to recognise the life-changing impact an inspirational teacher can have on the lives of the young people they work with. This year marks its 23rd year of celebrating our school teaching staff across the UK.
Elise Ecoff, Group Education Director at Nord Anglia Education, said:
“Congratulations to all the winners on this fantastic achievement. Today is an important opportunity to celebrate teachers in schools who are making a real difference in their students’ lives, whether that’s through their learning or by supporting their overall development. I always love seeing teachers use their passion to truly inspire students to develop the confidence, resilience, and creativity needed to succeed.”
