Awards from

The Educators’ Trust

Winners of Educatprs Trust awards receive this trophy and certificate at an awards dinner along  with their cheque.

Every year the Trust confers awards — prizes and bursaries — on professional educators who may be in full-time or part-time employment or self-employed. The awards include all levels of education – from early years to research institutes – and all settings in which learning takes place – from educational institutions to art galleries, theatres, outdoors and community spaces. Some are dedicated to particular fields of education, such as art, business and performing arts.

In addition, every year the Trustees choose a theme for a competitive award, ‘The Inspirational Educator Award’ for which there are eight winning places. Themes have included ICT in Teaching and Learning, Special Needs and Disability, prison education, hospital education, teaching Shakespeare, environmental education and music education. We also fund awards in partnership with other organisations, for example for vocational education with City and Guilds and prison education with the Prisoners’ Education Trust.

It is a joyful evening!
