The Pearson Teaching Awards

Celebrating transformational teaching


Silver Plato

Thank a Teacher Day 2019 is Wednesday 19th June!

On Thank a Teacher Day we will announce the Silver Winners of the prestigious Pearson National Teaching Awards – teachers, headteachers, teaching assistants and lecturers from  schools and colleges across England, Ireland and Wales. Silver Award winners will go on to the UK final of the Pearson National Teaching Awards, a glittering ceremony held in central London in October, when the winners of 13 Gold Awards, the UK’s “Oscars for Teachers”, will be announced.


The Pearson National Teaching Awards are an annual celebration of exceptional teachers, created to recognise the life-changing impact an inspirational teacher can have on the lives of the young people they teach. To thank a teacher that has made a difference to your life click here, fill in a short form and we will send a card on your behalf in the post, for free.


See who won a 2018 Silver Teaching Award here –and you can also see photos of their celebratory tea at the House of Commons.

We’d love to hear your stories – which teacher would you thank and why? Share with us on facebook  and twitter. And if you’re a teacher who’s received a Teaching Awards Thank You card why not share a photo too? We look forward to hearing from you!
