The London Teacher of the Year Awards mark the vital contribution that school staff make to our community. The awards recognise the expertise and dedication that is the hallmark of an outstanding teacher.
Nominations open each January. Award categories include primary, secondary, newly qualified teacher, non teaching member of staff including midday supervisors and caretakers and a volunteer award, which includes members of the PTA and governors.
A panel of judges select winners from the local authority areas across the capital and winners will be announced at a ceremony in June at the British Airways Headquarters, Heathrow.
The annual awards have a fundraising element with additional seats available to purchase on a paid basis and a raffle held at the awards dinner. Proceeds raised from the London Teacher of the Year Awards go to literacy and road safety projects in the capital.
- 2 January – 11.59pm on 8 March: open for nominations
