The nomination process is open for the two awards which will be made to teachers at the Society’s AGM in June through the Ordnance Survey Awards for ‘for excellence in geography education at the secondary level’.
We always have a high standard and last years’ awards were made to Andrew Emms and Raphael Heath
The deadline for nominations is 26th February 2016 and full details of the OS awards (and the others that the Society makes), alongside how to nominate are available on this link. http://www.rgs.org/AboutUs/Medals+and+awards/Medals+and+awards.htm
I imagine you may know a teacher/s whose work might be considered for recognition in this way and we would welcome a nomination/s from you.
If you’d like any more info about the awards - for e.g. they are always competitive and nominations should be made without the nominees knowledge – do feel free to drop me a line. It’s the Society’s Trustees who make the final decision and I’m very happy to talk through the process.
