Best Teacher of English Award

In 2016 BAS initiated an annual award offered to the best teacher of English of the year in partnership with Oxford University Press TEACHER MATTERS. As the world research shows, the quality of education depends mainly on the teacher. As a British alumni programme, we are deeply interested in spreading awareness of the English language and culture in a stimulating, attractive way. Therefore, we search for and award the best English teachers in Poland. The competition is open to all teachers of English working in state or independent schools within the framework of the Polish National Education System. The contest is organised by British Alumni Society in Poland, in partnership with Oxford University Press, who is also the founder of the main prize – The Best Teacher of English statuette.

We are looking for teachers who are inspiring, creative, appreciated by their students, dedicated to spreading awareness of English language and culture, and keen to develop their own professional teaching skills.
