Time to nominate for Teaching Awards
08 Feb 2010
The deadline is fast approaching for the 2010 Teaching Awards. You only have until March 1st to nominate your head teacher, teacher, governor, or entire school staff.
This year there is a new category: the Outstanding School Team. The idea is to reward school staff teams who work exceptionally well together. This will meet some of the criticism that says (unfairly in my view) that the awards fail to recognise that teaching is a team effort.
This year I am looking forward to being a national judge again and will be judging the Enterprise Award. More on this later.
