The National Teaching Awards 2014
The National Teaching Awards is an initiative of the Department of Basic Education. Each year the Department publically acknowledges and encourages dedicated and caring teachers in their efforts to develop learners as valuable citizens of our Country.
These teachers are honoured at a prestigious event held annually. This event focuses public attention on the positive aspects of education, thereby raising the public image of the teaching profession.
The 15th National Teaching Awards was held in Johannesburg on the 6th of March 2014. This was broadcast live on national television, to afford the public an opportunity to appreciate these dedicated teachers.
