German Teacher Award 2017

Ambassador Peter Ammon with winners of the 2016 German Teacher Award

Calling all German Teachers in the UK!

If you know a truly outstanding German language teacher at your school – make sure that their dedication and excellence get the recognition they deserve!

The Embassy of the Federal Republic of Germany is pleased to invite nominations for the annual German Teacher Award, now in its 14th successful year. The winners will receive a personal prize and a certificate. The prizes will be presented at a special ceremony during the "Sommerfest der Deutschen Sprache" in early summer 2017. The winners will be announced on the day of the ceremony.

On this occasion two of the prizes will be specially donated by the Austrian Cultural Forum and the Embassy of Switzerland and the Goethe-Institut’s Peter Boaks Prize, which recognises outstanding young(er) teachers of German, will also be awarded.

Please download the leaflets for detailed information on the selection criteria and the nomination process for the Award. Please note that headteachers must nominate the German teacher; unfortunately applications by German teachers submitted by themselves and applications submitted by pupils cannot be accepted.

Applications must be received by 1 May 2017.
