The search for Fife’s brightest education stars is underway as nominations open for the Scottish Education Awards 2015.

People are being urged to nominate the teaching professionals and local schools that go the extra mile for recognition at the national awards ceremony which honours the hard work and innovation happening in classrooms across Scotland.

Angela Constance, cabinet secretary for education and lifelong learning, said: “Teachers, and those who support education, are the lifeblood of our schools and communities and these awards help us to celebrate that. Schools across Scotland are working really hard and this is a great opportunity to make sure they are getting the recognition they deserve.”

There is a wide variety of award categories which recognise and reward the dedication of teaching staff and educational supporters. Entry is open to all publicly funded schools including secondary, primary, nursery and special schools.

Nominations can only be accepted online - go to www.scottisheducationawards.org.uk. The closing date for nominations is Monday, February 16 2015.
