Our Sheffield Best In Education Awards is coming up this October, and we’re asking people to nominate the unsung heroes of their local schools.

This year we are excited to welcome back Teachers UK as our associate sponsor.

A spokesman for Teachers UK said: “We’re delighted to be the associate sponsor for the Best in Education Awards 2016 for the second year running. We feel that it is extremely important for schools and academies and both staff and students to be recognised and rewarded for all their hard work throughout the year.”
