Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Helping Others -

Newly qual­i­fied teach­ers mak­ing a splash at their schools and ed­u­ca­tors trum­pet­ing lit­er­acy are be­ing sought by the county’s an­nual teach­ing awards.

The Kent Teacher of the Year Awards, open for nom­i­na­tions un­til March 1, will recog­nise and re­ward the district’s top lit­er­acy teacher and NQT of the year.

Am­bas­sadors of the event are urg­ing par­ents, pupils and schools to sub­mit at least one nom­i­na­tion while there is still time.

Other award cat­e­gories in­clude stan­dard cur­ricu­lum sub­jects as well as pri­mary, sec­ondary, vol­un­teer, team, and non-teach­ing mem­ber of staff.

Si­mon Dolby of the KM Char­ity Team, or­gan­is­ing the awards, said: “There’s not much time left so don’t de­lay in nom­i­nat­ing your favourite teacher for an award.

“It’s so quick and easy to do, just fill in the sim­ple on­line form on the awards web­site.”

More than 50 staff and schools will be recog­nised at a glit­ter­ing awards din­ner this May hosted by Leeds Cas­tle.

Fam­i­lies can cast their votes and school staff can nom­i­nate col­leagues at www.kent­
