Caerphilly - Caerphilly County Borough Teacher Nominated For Professional Teaching Awards


Saturday 5th Dec 2020


Nerys Todd, of Ysgol Cymraeg Caerffili, is a finalist in the 'Supporting Teachers and Learners' category of the fourth annual Professional Teaching Awards Cymru.
 
With the original ceremony postponed due to the pandemic, celebrations will now be held virtually on Sunday 29th November.
 
Over 100 nominations were collated earlier this year from pupils, colleagues, and parents who want to celebrate the extraordinary teachers in their lives. The nominees have now been shortlisted to 26 finalists across a range of categories.
 
Ms Todd is one of three finalists in contention for the Supporting Teachers and Learners category.
 
The Education Minister, Kirsty Williams, said: “It has been an incredibly tough year for parents, pupils and schools across Wales, but the education sector has shown immense resilience.
 
“Determination and innovation have shone through this year and our education workforce have been working tirelessly to keep Wales learning. 
 
“It is a privilege to announce these remarkable finalists and to read their stories of hard work and commitment. This year, more than ever, the awards are a celebration of the finalists themselves and the schools, teachers and pupils they represent.
 
“I look forward to celebrating each and every one of you and thank you all for the spirit and perseverance you have shown through this tremendously difficult year.”
 
Cllr Ross Whiting, Cabinet Member for Learning & Achievement, said: “This year has been incredibly challenging for teachers, staff, pupils, and their families. It has never been more important to recognise the dedication and resilience of our teaching staff across the country. I am so proud Ms. Todd has been shortlisted as a finalist and her hard work is being recognised nationally. Teaching assistants play a key role in education as they work tirelessly to provide support in the classroom. Congratulations on this achievement Ms. Todd, you should be very proud of yourself.
