New Blog Series: The Importance of Celebrating Educators on National Thank a Teacher Day 7 Jun 2024

There has never been a more important time to recognise and thank teachers and all those who work in education. Teachers educate and shape the future. It is the next generation who will need to tackle some of the biggest challenges that face the world today. To do this they need a great education from fantastic teachers and the support staff around them. 

We are delighted to share this series of great blogs from leaders in the sector highlighting why we need to thank our teachers. As we face the need to recruit more teachers, it is vital that we look after, and recognise those who are doing such a good job now.  

National Thank a Teacher Day creates an opportunity for everyone to come together with this united purpose, and we value the support we have from the sector and all our partners to make a bigger impact, and let all those who work in education know that we thank them, value them, and that they truly do make a difference.
