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

  • A member of the Senior Management Team completes an Endorsement Form (Form B)

North-West nominationsProposal Form A;  Endorsement Form B

Yorkshire and Humber nominationsProposal Form A;  Endorsement Form B

Proposal Form A needs to be sent to HLTA North by Friday 26th July 2019 and Endorsement Form B by Friday 26th July 2019.  Both forms for your region need to be submitted to Tim Hirst at HLTA North (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. All shortlisted candidates, together with a guest and a colleague, are invited to the celebration event on 02 October 2019.

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.
