How it works

Nominations close at 5pm.

The judging panel carefully consider all the nominations individually before meeting to draw up a shortlist of six finalists.

February – April

Two members of the judging panel visit each of the six shortlisted candidates to:

  • Observe a teaching session;
  • Interview a group of students, including some who participated in the observed session;
  • Interview two of the candidate’s teaching colleagues;
  • Interview the candidate’s Head of Department;
  • Interview the candidate themselves.

Each of these sessions is either video or audio recorded so that it can be shared with the remaining members of the judging panel.

The judging panel are sent the recordings from each of the campus visits and the student videos for their consideration. All four members of the panel then meet to discuss each candidate and decide the winner.
