The award goes to teachers who meet the criterion that they support student learning through:

  • Outstanding teaching efforts
  • Acknowledged interest in, and commitment to, educational development of teaching
  • Acknowledged pedagogical competence.

You should focus on this criterion when you nominate a teacher. Try to describe in your own words why you think your teacher meets the criterion and deserves the award. Bear in mind that nominations which are too short will not get past the first step in the selection procedure. The preferred amount of text is approximately 100 to 500 words per question. There is plenty of space for your text in the boxes in the nomination form. Just "scroll" down!

A teacher can normally only be awarded once.
