German Teacher Award 2023

Entry deadline: 10 May 2023

The Embassy of the Federal Republic of Germany in London is pleased to invite nominations for the annual German Teacher Award, now in its 20th successful year.

The German Teacher Award (GTA) recognizes truly outstanding German language teachers at primary or secondary schools in the UK.

The winners will receive a personal prize of £750 and a certificate. The prizes will be presented at a special ceremony in early summer. Winners will be announced on the day of the event.

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

Please note that headteachers or head of languages must nominate the German language teacher; unfortunately applications by German language teachers submitted by themselves and applications submitted by pupils cannot be accepted.
