Teachers of Physics award

Image result for iopThe 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.

Join the CREST Teacher Advisory Network

The CREST Awards team have relaunched their Teacher Advisory Network (TAN), and we'd love to get you on board.

The purpose of the TAN network is to help teachers improve and make the best use of CREST, whilst shining a spotlight on those who go above and beyond.

The network provides an opportunity for members and their colleagues to generate ideas, as well as develop and test projects or approaches related to CREST.

If you're interested in getting involved, please fill in the registration form.
