The ENTHUSE Celebration Awards

ENTHUSE Celebration Awards 2020

Our winners for 2020 have been announced

The ENTHUSE Celebration Awards recognise the schools, teachers and technicians which have gone the extra mile to inspire their students and develop their professional practice. This year we were delighted to announce the winners for our 2020 ENTHUSE Celebration Awards on Thursday 10 December at 4pm.

The announcement will be made via a video on our YouTube channel, hosted by Dallas Campbell, presenter of The Gadget Show and Bang Goes The Theory, and we will also hear from this year's winners themselves. You can watch the video below and meet our winners here.

CPD has an impact - on teachers and technicians, their colleagues, their school or college and their students - and this deserves to be celebrated. Teachers who have undertaken CPD at the National STEM Learning Centre in York, through our network of Science Learning Partnerships, via our online CPD, or with one of our partners in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland are all eligible to apply. 

Winners for the STEM Inspiration Awards will be announced in the new year and we plan to run both of our award programmes in 2021.  For any further awards enquiries please email​​
