With so many providers offering so many different options, sifting through and finding the best can be a time-consuming exercise.

That’s where our annual Teach Secondary Awards come in.

Each year, we issue an open invitation for companies and organisations to submit their education resources for analysis by a team of expert judges, to identify those most worthy of schools’ time and attention.

The awards this year spanned 10 categories, with entries judged according to the following criteria:

  • Does the resource meet a genuine need?
  • What impact is it likely to have?
  • How easy is the resource to implement and use?
  • Can the resource be adapted for use in different settings?
  • Does it represent good value for money?
