NUT Representative and Officer of the Year awards 2014-15
Designed to recognise the contribution made by NUT representatives and officers at a local level, the NUT Representative and Officer of the Year awards celebrate their hard work and commitment.
NUT members are invited to nominate an NUT representative or an officer who has made a difference in their school, academy, college or local area.
NUT representative roles include NUT representative in a school, college or academy, health and safety representative and learning representative.
NUT officer roles include equality officer, health and safety adviser, learning representative, membership secretary, secretary and treasurer.
Complete your nomination form here. The closing date for the 2014-15 nominations is Friday, 12 December 2014.
If you have any queries, please contact Nicola Tracey or Jane Messervy in the Organising and Membership department at NUT Headquarters. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 020 7380 4822/4780.
We would be pleased to receive any supporting materials that you would like to submit with your nomination. Some sample supporting materials can be viewed here.
Nominations will be judged against a set of criteria. It is not anticipated, however, that nominations will address all the criteria. If you feel that your representative or officer only meets one of the criteria, we still want to hear from you.
There are 10 NUT Representative of the Year awards, one for each region in England and one for Wales. Similarly, there are 10 Officer of the Year awards.
The nominations for the regional/Wales awards are judged by regional/Wales panels convened by the NUT regional/Wales secretaries and consisting of the local NUT Executive members.
Subsequently, the winners of the regional/Wales awards are considered by the NUT’s Executive Recruitment and Retention Sub-Committee for the national awards.
The winners of the regional/Wales and national awards will be announced on the NUT website.
The regional/Wales awards will be presented at regional/Wales events.
The National Representative of the Year and National Officer of the Year awards will be presented at Annual Conference.
