The ENTHUSE Celebration Awards

ENTHUSE Celebration Award final 2018

We are delighted to be running the ENTHUSE Celebration Awards again in 2019. CPD has an impact - on teachers and technicians, their colleagues, their school or college and their students - and this deserves to be celebrated.

So, whether you've undertaken CPD at our 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 - we want to celebrate your commitment to CPD and the impact it has had on you, your students and your school or college.

The ENTHUSE Celebration Awards are free to enter, and raise the profile of dedicated teachers, technicians, schools and colleges across the UK. Project ENTHUSE logo

Applications for the 2019 awards are currently open and will close on 1 April 2019.

What’s involved?

We will be holding four regional heats across the UK in London, York, Northern Ireland and Scotland where we select regional winners. The regional winners will then be invited to the prestigious national awards event at the Royal Society in London on 20 June 2019 to celebrate their success and collect their prizes.

How to apply

This year we have made the application process even easier. We have also made it just as easy to nominate a colleague as to apply yourself, for department or school leaders that wish to recognise the quality of their staff and school or college. 


Get involved

Do you know an outstanding teacher, technician or support staff? Why not nominate them for an ENTHUSE Celebration Award?


Please forward your completed application form to no later than 1 April 2019.
