Teachers of Physics award
There’s no denying that teachers contribute an immense amount to any society, however sometimes do not achieve the recognition they deserve.
The Teachers of Physics awards, instituted in 1986, celebrate the success of secondary school physics teachers who, by their outstanding practice in the classroom have raised the state of physics and science in schools.
Individuals are honoured alongside distinguished research scientists and industrialists at our Annual Awards dinner. In this way we recognise that without dedicated teachers there would be no physics research community or technological base in our society.
2013 Award Process
For 2013 the Institute is adopting a new selection procedure for nominations for teachers in England, based on progression and performance data. We will not therefore be seeking nominations for 2013.
For Ireland, Wales and Scotland the relevant national committees will be making their own separate arrangements.
For Scotland, nominations are being sought, as in previous years. Please download the following form, and return to Gordon Doig, as specified on the form, by 24 May.
