Join the search for Edinburgh's education stars

Press release issued by the Scottish Education Awards to open nominations for the national event.

The search is underway for Edinburgh’s brightest education stars as nominations open for the Scottish Education Awards 2014.  

People are being urged to nominate the teaching professionals and local schools that go the extra mile, for recognition at the national awards ceremony which honours the hard work and innovation happening in classrooms across Scotland.  

The Cabinet Secretary for Education and Lifelong Learning Michael Russell, said: “The awards give us all an opportunity to recognise, share and celebrate our schools’ fantastic work." 

Councillor Paul Godzik, City of Edinburgh Council Education Convener, said: “We have a wealth of talented teachers working in great schools in the capital which was shown last year by Prospect Bank School winning one of the top awards and Edinburgh having three other finalists.  

“Each school has its own projects and successes involving both pupils and teachers and it would be great for as many of these to be recognised nationally at this year’s Scottish Education Awards.  I would encourage people in Edinburgh to come forward and nominate the people, schools and projects that have made a difference to education in their local communities.” 

The awards are open to all publicly funded schools, including secondary, primary, nursery and special schools.  There are also categories to recognise and reward the dedication of teachers, head-teachers and support staff across Scotland.     

Do you know a local school that shines within the community or an exemplary teacher who motivates and nurtures pupils to become confident learners?  If so, this is the opportunity to ensure that deserving schools and education stars in Edinburgh are recognised.    

Nominations close on the 21 February. For further information and to make a nomination visit
