Recognition for outstanding work in teaching profession

The essential role of teachers within schools and wider communities has never been more evident than throughout this year.


Teachers adapted their profession in a short period of time to ensure that students could continue their education during remote learning amid a global pandemic.


They truly demonstrated their high level of expertise, professionalism and commitment and should be recognised for their role in supporting our communities. 


Our union encourages members to nominate themselves or their colleagues to recognise their outstanding work in the teaching profession.
