LOCAL winners of the Pearson teaching Awards are hoping to extend their success to a national level when they attend its prestigious awards ceremony next month.
Earlier this year, Cogan Nursery School won Outstanding Team of the Year in Wales for its ‘buzzing enthusiasm for learning’, while Mary Lane of Albert Primary won Teaching Assistant of the Year at a special assembly to mark her 40-year contribution to the school.
The Pearson Teaching Awards will announce the UK winners at a ceremony in London on Sunday October 20.
A television programme hosted by Clare Balding will be broadcast on BBC2 a week later on Sunday 27 October at 6pm.
A record 24,000 nominations were made by grateful pupils, parents and colleagues for this year’s awards.
