The BBC presenter hosting the ceremony for the 2020 Sussex Teacher of the Year Awards has spoken of her “delight” at being involved with the event.
BBC Sussex presenter Allison Ferns said: “I’m delighted to be hosting the Sussex Teacher of The Year Awards again.
“Last year I was blown away by our inspirational winners. Their commitment and passion for education was amazing to see, and it was obvious to see the real difference they are making in their pupil’s lives.
“Teachers do such an important job shaping our children’s futures, and it’s great to have an event that celebrates their hard work.”
Organised by children’s charity Inspire Schools, the awards recognise excellence across the primary and secondary education sectors.
And ‑ with the deadline having been extended by a week – people now have until 11.59pm on Sunday March 8 to submit nominations.
Anyone can do so at SussexTeacheroftheYear.co.uk.
The winners will be chosen by representatives of judging organisations including Kreston Reeves, British Airways, 3D Recruit, Streetspace, Diggerland and KCS, and be announced at a ceremony to be held at the Jurys Inn Brighton Waterfront hotel in June.
