Enter your School Hero for a Pearson National Teaching Award through the Thank A Teacher Campaign

Entries now open

Entries are now open for the 2022 Pearson National Teaching Awards as featured on BBC’s The One Show.

The ‘Unsung Hero’ Award, honours our everyday heroes and ensures these amazing staff working in schools and colleges are given the thanks they deserve. This award is open to anyone working in a school – teacher, support staff including caretakers, playground helpers, school office staff, head teachers and teachers.

It is the only award open to nominations from parents/carers and pupils so if you know an amazing member of school staff or school/college team send them a free thank you e-card using the button below and tick the box saying you would like to card to turn into a nomination. We’ll then follow up with the recipient’s school to progress the thank you into a fully fledged Pearson National Teaching Awards entry!

To give your unsung hero the best chance of success here are a few tips

Making a difference

How has your hero improved your life or, if a parent/carer, the life of your child(ren)? Can you list any examples in your thank you?

Supporting others

How has your hero shown examples of helping other people apart from you – particularly those more in need than themselves?
