The teacher being nominated needs to be involved in the nomination process and nominees will typically have at least 5 years' experience of classroom teaching. This year's winner will receive £500 for themselves and £500 of Oxford University Press resources for their school in addition to prizes from UK 3B Scientific Ltd and the National Science Learning Centre.
