The Teaching Awards Trust was established in 1998 by David, Lord Puttnam CBE, as a means of recognising and celebrating excellence in education. The Awards honour outstanding teachers and teaching and highlight just how vital success in education is to the health and wealth of the UK.
The charity’s mission is to celebrate excellence in education, through the annual Pearson Teaching Awards and the Thank a Teacher Campaign.
Every day at the Pearson Teaching Awards Trust, we hear of exceptional teachers, lecturers, headteachers and teaching assistants who help students aim high and achieve their potential, often meeting and overcoming considerable challenges along the way.
The Teaching Awards offers everyone the opportunity to say “thank you”, to the teacher who has helped them most. Anyone can take part, children, students, parents, grandparents and colleagues can all go online and say thank you. In return, we will send a thank you card to each and every person or team of people who is thanked. Every “thank you”, then becomes a nomination for a Teaching Award.
How to Enter
Entries can be submitted by schools or colleges. Members of the public can nominate a teacher for an award through our ‘Thank You’ scheme. Click here for more details.

If you want to endorse a thank you that one of your staff has received, you don’t need to wait for us to write to you – you can start the process today by downloading the relevant entry form for the category in which you wish to endorse and thereby enter your staff member for an Award.
Please note the Pearson Teaching Awards operates the following policies:

- If the nominee will be retiring before April 2018 then sadly they are not eligible to be entered for a Teaching Award.
