2020 Pearson English Global Teacher Award

The winners have now been announced!

Each year the Pearson English Global Teacher Award competition celebrates the great work that teachers do around the globe. The five winners will each have the chance to attend either TESOL or IATEFL, all-expenses-paid, as their prize. 

This year’s winners impressed the judges with their commitment to their students, application of creative teaching techniques, and willingness to try new methods to support the progress of their students. 

Entrants for the Award came from North & Central America, South America, Europe & Central Asia, Asia & Oceania, and Africa & Middle East- and we have one winner from each region. 

The competition for the fifth anniversary of the Teacher Award will kick off in September 2020.
