Everyone spends time in the formal education system, and it's the actions of teachers and others who work in schools that influence some of the biggest decisions we'll ever make.

The Essex Teaching Awards give us the opportunity to ensure those individuals get the recognition they deserve, allowing us to identify, celebrate and share best practice.


Over the past four years the awards have acknowledged outstanding teachers and headteachers, teaching assistants, governing bodies and school teams who work in Essex.
