It has been a difficult few weeks in education following the spread of the coronavirus and the Government declaring the majority of schools in the UK are to be closed.


The dedication, strength and positivity by senior teams, teachers and support staff has been incredible to witness and the team behind the Educate Awards are encouraging students, families and colleagues to give thanks to those who have gone above and beyond during this time.


Nominating your favourite teacher for the highly coveted ‘The Teacher of the Year Award’ is one way you can show how much they mean to you.


This award recognises teachers who have gone that extra mile by bringing learning to life by engaging and inspiring children and young people to fulfil their potential through their tireless efforts, patience, passion, encouragement, dedication and energy.  


You can also nominate senior leaders for the Leadership Team of the Year category and non-teaching staff for the School Support Star of the Year Award.  


Kim O’Brien, founder of the Educate Awards, said: “It has been a testing time for everyone recently, especially schools and their teams of dedicated staff who have been working around the clock to ensure pupils and students can self-isolate without it hindering their learning.


“Now, more than ever, we need to shine a spotlight on the work of the teaching profession and so we’re encouraging pupils, students, families, headteachers, and colleagues to nominate those who deserve to be recognised.”


Kim added: “Entries will no doubt be stronger than ever this year and so we recommend that you head to the Educate Awards website to find out how you can make your submission standout from the rest.”

The deadline for entries is midnight Sunday 21 June.
