Shine the spotlight on school stars

Schools can showcase their best and brightest by putting forward individuals or teams for a Kent Teacher of the Year Award.

Top teachers, support staff, groups, and volunteers will all be recognised at the event, which is now open to nominations. Submissions can be made by anyone passionate about their school or college including staff, parents and pupils.

Nominations can be made for any role as there is a category appropriate for anyone making a difference to pupils or colleagues.
