Teacher of the Year Awards

Teacher of the Year Awards

Career Teachers “Teacher of the Term” and “Teacher of the Year” Awards are presented in appreciation of the dedication and hard work our Teachers and Support Staff deliver day in day out to schools across the UK. Your resilience and passion for educating students, delivering engaging and creative lessons and 1-1 support in a variety of subjects with differing ability levels across a range of Primary, Secondary and SEND Schools is an inspiration to us. Because of this never tiring enthusiasm and work ethic, we want to do more than just thank you, but reward you with the Career Teachers Teacher Awards. Not only do Career Teachers want to thank and reward you for the work you have done, but so do the schools you support.

How do the Teacher of the Year awards work?


Your Career Teachers consultant will be speaking with your schools about nominating their agency staff throughout the term, but you can also remind the schools you are working in about the awards and how they can nominate you!

All schools will be sent a nomination survey where they will be able to choose a member of your education staff to be nominated for this award, along with the reason for your nomination. 

The award will then be announced once a term, and those who have won will the be entered into the Teacher of the Year award.

Who can I nominate?


Schools you can nominate anyone working in your school from Career Teachers whether this is a Teacher, Teaching Assistant, Learning Support Assistant – we know how much you appreciate all the people who help you make your school a safe, engaging and welcoming place to learn and work, and this is your chance to show your appreciation and thanks.
