The Search is on for the UK’s Most Talented Teachers

The UK’s most talented teachers will be celebrated later this spring as a brand new competition launches to find the most talented, most dedicated, most enthusiastic and most innovative educator in the country.

The Talented Teachers competition has been designed to give recognition to the thousands of teachers making a difference in the nation’s schools. It will reward those who make learning fun for kids, as well as those teachers who are able to really engage young minds in subjects as diverse as languages, maths, sciences and the arts.

Available to all levels of teachers from seasoned pros to newcomers to the profession, the talent search will reward the cream of the crop with a whole host of covetable prizes. The fantastic prizes on offer include a £500 voucher for a dream holiday or an iPad and iWatch. The winning teacher will be given the chance to choose their own prize and take home £500 worth of resources for their school.

The competition is the brainchild of, a leading UK School and Local Authority recruitment site for teachers, leaders and education professionals. Gareth Thyer-Jones, Managing Director said, “We work with some of the best teachers and schools in the country. Understanding what an incredible job they do with their pupils. Teaching is not an easy job, we wanted to reward teachers for their efforts recognising those who really go the extra mile. There are some very talented teachers out there that have a huge and positive impact on pupil’s attainment.

“Our Talented Teacher search is a great way to recognise the brightest of our nation’s teachers and we’re really looking forward to hearing from colleagues, pupils and parents about the talented teachers they know and work with every day. We really value the incredible work that teachers do and would like to showcase this and give away some fantastic prizes!”
