Founded by Lord Puttnam CBE in 1998, the Teaching Awards is an annual celebration of teaching and learning with a UK final televised on BBC2 every October.
Oscar-winning actress and writer Emma Thompson is the new president of the Teaching Awards Trust. She said: “I am genuinely proud and honoured to take on this new role as president of the Teaching Awards. I owe so much of what I've done to my fantastic teachers at school and at university.
“It is very difficult to imagine how any of us would develop into happy, confident, fulfilled citizens without good teachers. But for them, all the other professions would pretty much cease to exist.”
