The prestigious awards, now in their twelfth year, are a vital part of the teaching calendar – a chance to take a step back and thank outstanding teachers all over the country for the work they do educating our young people.

The awards programme identifies and celebrates exceptional teachers who are achieving outstanding results, often in the most challenging circumstances.

Rod Bristow, President of Pearson's core markets including the UK, says: “Supporting the Pearson Teaching Awards gives us a unique opportunity to champion exceptional teaching professionals across the UK. Pearson has long held lifelong learning to be at the heart of all its business. All young people deserve the very best chance to make progress in their lives through education.

“That is why we believe it’s vital to recognise inspirational teachers for their commitment to teaching and learning and improving the life chances of the next generation.”

Want to thank an inspirational teacher?

The Pearson Teaching Awards incorporate the national 'Thank a Teacher' campaign, giving young people a voice by enabling them publicly to thank a teacher who has made a significant difference in their lives.

You can can thank your favourite teachers all year round, and each thank you counts as an award nomination for the Thank a Teacher awards which happen in the first half of the year.

Thank your favourite teacher.
