THIS YEAR WE ARE LOOKING TO CELEBRATE THE WORK OF HLTAS ACROSS OUR REGION WHO HAVE MADE A SIGNIFICANT CONTRIBUTION DURING THE PANDEMIC (MARCH 2020 UNTIL JULY 2021); SUPPORTING LEARNERS, WORKING WITH COLLEAGUES AND PARENTS, AND TAKING ON ADDITIONAL RESPONSIBILITIES. NOMINATIONS CAN BE MADE UNTIL 1st OCTOBER 2021.

Nominating a HLTA colleague for ‘Outstanding HLTA of the Year’ is an easy two-stage process:

  • Completion of a short Proposal Form (Form A) by a colleague (teacher, governor, HLTA or TA)
  • Completion of a one-page Endorsement Form (Form B) by a member of the Senior Management Team

North-West nominations

 NW Proposal Form A; NW Endorsement Form B

North-East nominations

NE Proposal Form A; NE Endorsement Form B

Yorkshire and Humber nominations

YH Proposal Form A; YH Endorsement Form B

Proposal Forms A and B need to be sent to Ryan Kaye, r.kaye@leedsbeckett.ac.uk, at HLTA North by 1st October 2021, (see Guidance Document).

What next? Nominations are considered and assessed by a selected panel from the HLTA community; this includes previous winners of the award, senior assessors and invited guests who have significant experience working with TAs and HLTAs.

Please discuss this with school colleagues and encourage participation; we are always delighted to receive all nominations so that we can celebrate and acknowledge what HLTAs are doing around the region.  The award really helps to raise the profile of HLTA status and recognise the impact that HLTAs make every day on the lives of children and young people.
