Cantium are delighted to again be supporting the Kent Teacher of The Year awards, sponsoring two categories; Head Teacher of the Year and Wellbeing Champion of the Year.

2021 was another year which challenged the resilience of school staff as they contended with the disruptions caused by COVID-19, and another year where we have seen educators and school staff take these challenges head-on, for the sake of educating our future generations.

With education a key part of Cantium’s heritage and wellbeing at the heart of the culture we work to share, we are delighted to have the opportunity to celebrate the incredible efforts of all of those within our schools and helping our children.

These awards recognise that every role in school has played a part in helping our children stay fed, safe, educated and motivated – from school secretaries to caretakers, head teachers and volunteers. Not everyone can win but all nominees receive notification of their nomination, something which goes a long way to showing our appreciation for all that they do.

We hope that you will join us in celebrating the hard work of our school staff and volunteers during the last year by nominating your colleagues and others that have made a difference, and encouraging your peers to do the same.

How do you vote?
