In today's blog post we're continuing our new series introducing you to our valued sponsors who have made the Teach Portsmouth Awards 2022 possible.
This week we hear from Dr Catherine Carroll-Meehan, Head of School of Education and Sociology at the University of Portsmouth, about why they are sponsoring this year's new teacher of the year award.
The University of Portsmouth received university status in 1992. We are a breath of fresh air in the academic world – a place where everyone gets the support they need to achieve their best.We are closely involved with our local community and we take our ideas into the global marketplace. We partner with business, industry and government to set the course for a better future. And we educate and transform the lives of our students to help them achieve their potential. We stand out, not just in the UK but in the world. We excel in research areas from cosmology and astrophysics to cyber security, forensics and sport science.
The University of Portsmouth aims to become one of the UK's leading civic universities and to be recognised for our civic engagement through the positive differences we make across our region.Through active partnerships with organisations like Teach Portsmouth, and innovative approaches, we will contribute to improving educational outcomes at schools and colleges in Portsmouth and promote access to higher education that will transform life chances for young people in our city.
We are looking forward to celebrating the hard work and dedication of Portsmouth's outstanding teachers who have shown incredible commitment to supporting the city's children during the pandemic.
We are so proud of you! Your hard work and dedication, throughout COVID-19, has been outstanding. Thank you for continually investing into the lives of young people in our city - you are preparing them for a great future.
