A Lowestoft teacher has been shortlisted to win a national Teacher of the Year award.
Keith Shiels, who teaches IT at Lowestoft Sixth Form College and is also the vice principal, will be up for the prestigious gong at the Tes Further Education Awards 2018.
The awards celebrate excellent and innovative practice across the further education sector and, with a record number of entries, this year’s ceremony at London’s Grosvenor House Hotel on February 23 is set to be the biggest yet.
Lowestoft Sixth Form College principal David Gartland said: “One of our wonderful members of staff, Keith Shiels, has been shortlisted to win the Tes Teacher of the Year award.
“As well as teaching IT, Keith is known as the director of the STEM curriculum and the sport faculty, and has also recently been appointed as our interim vice principal.
“Keith is a very popular teacher and the students love him, plus he always achieves great results within his faculty.”
