These awards recognise and celebrate individuals who, by their practice have raised the state of, and supported the learning of physics in schools and colleges across the UK and Ireland. For 2024 we have streamlined the nominations process to make it as easy as possible for you to nominate colleagues or yourselves.

For each award the individual will receive a £1000, an invitation to a celebratory event, and other benefits specific to that award.

What Schools Say About Us

Being part of the Stoke on Trent and Staffordshire Careers Hub has been pivotal to the development of careers provision in our school. The Hub have shared good practice across their members resulting in a stronger focus on good quality provision. The annual event enabled the hub to share their vision of School Improvement Through The Lens of Careers and looking beyond the Benchmarks. It was a fantastic opportunity to share different models of school improvement and strategies to further develop careers provision to enhance the future opportunities of our young people.
