Teachers of Physics Award

The Teachers of Physics awards celebrate the success of secondary school physics teachers who have raised the profile of physics and science in schools.

We know that teachers contribute an immense amount to society and we wish to accord them the recognition they deserve.

With these awards, we honour teachers alongside distinguished research scientists and industrialists.

In this way we recognise that without dedicated teachers there would be no physics research community or technological base in society.

How to make a nomination

Nomination forms for Ireland, Scotland and Wales will be available later in 2020 on this page.
