Tomorrow’s Teacher - a new competition for you and your class

Teachers TV in association with ESRC (the Economic and Social Research Council) is launching an exciting, cross curriculum project for you and your class called Tomorrow’s Teacher. The aim is to inspire you and your students to imagine the future: to consider how today's rapid pace of change will impact upon the educational needs of the next generation, and to think about how best to deliver that education. How will tomorrow’s teacher differ from today? This is your chance to have your say and tell us how you think the role of teachers in the future will change.


Tomorrow's Teacher provides you with an engaging set of resources; inspirational programmes, lesson plans, worksheets, and related video content from Teachers TV. In addition, there are two competitions for you to enter, offering the chance to win some fantastic prizes.


Think-piece competition

Teachers and all those working in education, including trainee teachers, are invited to research and submit a short (1500 word) think-piece/essay on teaching and the role of the teacher in the future. The winner will receive a £250 Amazon voucher and four runners up will receive £100 worth of Amazon vouchers each. All winners will be selected by a distinguished panel of judges (The winning entries will also be published online at


Classroom competition

To enter you need to run a lesson or activity (or a series of lessons) linked to the theme of Tomorrow’s Teacher and send us three examples of the best of your student’s work on the subject.  You could win up £250 of Amazon vouchers for your school, and have the opportunity to be filmed for a special Teachers TV programme.   To support you Teachers TV has developed a fantastic set of resources for Key Stages 1, 2, 3 and 4, to help you deliver an engaging cross-curricular lesson on the future of teaching, with links to the National Curriculum in Science and other subjects too.   It’s a great idea for National Science and Engineering week on 6-15 March 09!
