We’re proud to be supporting SHINE, an organisation which has been working for over a decade to improve the lives of disadvantaged children and a cause that we support wholeheartedly.
Let Teachers SHINE
SHINE’s competition, Let Teachers SHINE, provides an opportunity for inspirational teachers to use their ideas to improve outcomes for children. All you need to do is submit your idea for teaching disadvantaged young people English, maths or science. 10 winning projects are selected each year and each winner will receive up to £15,000 from SHINE.
Previous winners include Colin Hegarty, founder of HegartyMaths, aimed at helping GCSE students with their maths exams by producing revision videos. Colin’s determination and commitment have led him to be shortlisted for a global teaching prize worth a million dollars.
2015 winner Gavin Summerfield wowed the crowds at Bett 2016 with his NAO robot project, which helped children learn how to program and tell stories using NAO robot technology.
The winners of this year's competition were announced on Wednesday 22nd June 2016. See the full list of winners!
How do you help your pupils shine?
We brought together a group of inspirational teachers and asked them to tell us how they help their pupils to shine in school. Our teachers are all winners of this year’s Let Teachers SHINE competition, which helps teachers to bring brilliant ideas to fruition by developing projects to support disadvantaged young people across the country. Check out our video to see their thoughts.

We asked a group of inspirational teachers why they love teaching. These are just some of the fantastic answers we were given.
To raise achievement I need time, training, tracking and teaching!
Katie Gibson, Curriculum Team Leader and 2015 Let Teachers SHINE winner, tells us what she needs to raise achievement among her students.
'The one thing I need to raise achievement is...' #TeachToInspire
We wanted to know what the most important thing needed by teachers is, so we asked them. This is what they had to say.
