More information about the awards and how to submit your nomination can be found here.
NASBTT Executive Director Emma Hollis said: “The past 12 months have already seen huge celebrations in the ITT sector, with 99% of provision now rated either good or outstanding and a staggering 43% of SCITT provision rated outstanding, so in many ways the excellence of school-based teacher education sector speaks for itself. However, what the NASBTT Awards 2019 are fundamentally about is recognising the exceptionally hard-working and talented professionals behind the statistics and data. We are proud to launch our annual awards and look forward to receiving nominations from members for the seven categories. We are also excited to present an Outstanding Contribution award on the evening, with the individual recipient to be decided by the NASBTT central team.”
