Going for Gold in National Teaching Awards
Selected from thousands of nominations from schools and colleges across the country, the Hospitality and Catering Team at Eastleigh College is in the running to win one of the 15 Gold Pearson National Teaching Awards to be announced in November in a programme broadcast by the BBC.
In June the team was honoured as the Silver Winner of the 'FE Team of the Year' category in the 2021 Pearson National Teaching Awards for their outstanding commitment to changing the lives of the young people they work with every day.
The Silver Awards are part of wider celebrations for ‘Thank a Teacher Day’, a national campaign to honour and recognise the exceptional school and college staff who have worked wonders during an incredibly challenging time for educators across the country. Silver Winners are also finalists for the Gold Award in their category.
