The ACT Teaching Awards 2022 – Shortlist
Over 100 outstanding Citizenship teachers, school leaders and organisations from across the UK were nominated for this year’s inaugural ACT Teaching Awards, giving the panel of judges a very difficult set of decisions.
The shortlisted finalists and winners will be recognised at the Houses of Parliament on 4th July. The evening celebration will pay tribute to the many teachers and schools who work tirelessly to provide excellent Citizenship education, as we mark 20 years of ACT and of Citizenship as a national curriculum subject.
