It’s almost that time of year again: The Pearson Teaching Awards
It’s almost that time of year again when the great and the good from the world of education gather to honour the achievements of the people who make everything possible: the teachers. The Pearson Teaching Awards are due to take place at the Palace Theatre, Cambridge Circus in London on Sunday 30th October and with more nominations than ever this year’s event promises to be one that shouldn’t be missed.
Adding a comedic touch to proceedings, as well as advocating the importance of inspiration pedagogical practice, is Lenny Henry who will host the award ceremony which is known by many as the ‘Teaching Oscars’. Caroline Evans, Chief Executive of The Teaching Awards said: “This is a record year for the Teaching Awards with more than 22,000 nominations. Each and every one has been thanked for making a difference to the lives of children and young people. The finalists have been chosen, our judges have visited all their schools and it’s now just down to Lenny to host the awards.”
Lenny, who like many pupils has his own story of inspirational teaching, is not the only celebrity who will be in attendance on the night with Minnie Driver, Al Murray, David Morrissey and Beverley Knight all due to hand out awards. Now in their twelfth year the awards recognise outstanding and inspirational teaching and advocate best practice throughout the country. Nominations for the Teaching Awards 2012 are now open at www.thankateacher.co.uk or www.teachingawards.com
