The President's Award for Teachers (PAT) and the Outstanding Youth in Education Award (OYEA) 2018

Every year, two national awards are given out to teachers to recognise their professional excellence. They are the President’s Award for Teachers (PAT) and the Outstanding Youth in Education Award (OYEA). 

The President’s Award for Teachers gives national recognition to experienced teachers for their dedication and hard work in developing our young. These teachers prepare students for life, as well as model commitment to continuous learning and enterprise. They inspire both their students and peers through their words and deeds. Nominations for PAT 2018 are now open and will close on Monday, 15 January 2018.  

The Outstanding Youth in Education Award seeks to recognise excellent young teachers for their youthful idealism, energy, enthusiasm and active involvement in the development of youths. With effect from 2012, the age criterion for OYEA has been revised to 35 years and younger. For OYEA 2018, it is open to educators who are born on or after 30 June 1983.

Nominations for OYEA 2018 are now open and will close on Friday, 30 November 2017.
