Nom­i­nate un­sung teach­ing he­roes

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - NEW YEAR’S EVE ASSAULT -

The search has be­gun to find the dis­trict’s best teach­ing staff, as nom­i­na­tions open for the 2019 Kent Teacher of the Year Awards.

Or­gan­ised by the KM Char­ity Team, the awards recog­nise staff’s ex­per­tise, ded­i­ca­tion and con­tri­bu­tion to our com­mu­nity.

There are sep­a­rate cat­e­gories for pri­mary, sec­ondary, fur­ther ed­u­ca­tion and newly qual­i­fied teach­ers, non-teach­ing staff and vol­un­teers.

The panel of judges will select win­ners from each of Kent and Med­way’s 13 lo­cal au­thor­ity ar­eas, as well as over­all win­ners for the whole county, and any­one can make nom­i­na­tions.

KM Char­ity Team chief ex­ec­u­tive Si­mon Dolby said: “Why not start 2019 with a res­o­lu­tion to demon­strate how much you ap­pre­ci­ate the won­der­ful work that teach­ers, in­di­vid­ual and teams of staff do in the dis­trict’s schools and col­leges?

“There’s never been greater need for awards like these.”

The dead­line for nom­i­na­tions is March 1. Visit kent­teacheroftheyear.co.uk.
