Applications are now open for the STEM Learning Awards. Celebrate the best in STEM education by nominating yourself or a colleague.

Everyone remembers an amazing role model from childhood who may never have got the recognition they deserved. Our STEM Learning Teaching Awards and STEM Inspiration Awards celebrate the superstars across education and employment who’ve had a lasting impact on their students and the education field.

Applications are made via our online form and you can find further guidance in the FAQ section at the bottom of that page. Submissions close on 11 April 2022.

Regional and National award events

This year we will be celebrating our winners on a regional basis, bringing educators, employers and STEM Ambassadors together by inviting winners from both awards to a regional celebration event in May.

These winners will then be invited to a National Celebration Event in June for the STEM Learning Teaching Awards and in November for the STEM Inspiration Awards.

If you have any questions about the awards or making an application, please email awards@stem.org.uk.
