These awards shine a spotlight on those who continue to make a difference in the field of education. They seek to reward those members of the teaching and education sector for their hard work both in the classroom and behind the scenes.


We know from our previous awards how much of a difference, many teachers make to the lives of our young people. We are excited to be launching the Worcestershire Education Awards 2024 across all of our local titles and websites – Worcester News, Malvern Gazette, Evesham Journal, Bromsgrove & Droitwich Advertiser, Kidderminster Shuttle and Redditch Advertiser.


This prestigious scheme recognises the achievements, passion and dedication of those involved in all kinds of education – from nurseries to primary and secondary schools as well as colleges and training schemes. We look forward to reading this year’s nominations and sharing their wonderful stories. We will be hosting the 2024 awards ceremony as a black tie event on Thursday 18th April at a venue to be confirmed.
