From education to employment

Lord Glenamara Memorial Prize awards

We invite schools, sixth-form colleges, further education providers and business representatives to nominate pupils, teachers, career leaders and other inspiring professionals for recognition.

These prizes recognise North East pupils achieving academic and vocational excellence as well as dedicating themselves to the service of others in their school and the wider community. They also recognise the most inspiring teachers and other professionals who are helping to ensure that young people in the North East achieve their potential.

Headteachers and principals can nominate any year 11, 12 and 13 pupils or students who have shown:

outstanding academic or technical performance – including record of grades achieved or predicted grades

interest in government, education, history or public service
