Nominations for the 2021 Dedicated Teacher Awards are now open!

Dedicated Teacher Awards 2021

Teachers play a vital role in the lives of their students and often make a difference without even knowing it. 

The Dedicated Teacher Awards are a global competition in which you can nominate a current primary or secondary teacher for something wonderful they've done. 2020 was a challenging year for everyone, and so this year we want to reach as many teachers as possible to thank them for truly going above and beyond for their students.

You can help us to do that by telling us about your dedicated teacher, nominate a teacher now. Nominations will be open until 12 March, 2021.
