North East Teacher of the Year
  • When: -

To end this summer term with a bang, we’re going head to head in our search for the North East Teacher of the Year 2015. Championed by intu Metrocentre’s head and deputy head of fun, the competition seeks to say a well-deserved "Thank You" to the region’s teachers.

As part of our search we’re asking parents, teachers and students from across the region to nominate their favourite teacher via social media. 

All you have to do to nominate your favourite teacher is to head to either our Twitter or Facebook page and let us know the name and school of your #intuBestTeacher.

On Twitter, simply tweet us @intueldonsquare with the name of your teacher and school, using the hashtag #intuBestTeacher.

Meanwhile, to enter on Facebook, comment on one of the relevant #intuBestTeacher posts and let us know your teacher and school.

The winning teacher will be crowned North East Teacher of the Year 2015 and will be rewarded with an all-expenses paid pamper day in the form of a £300 intu Gift Card. The runner up will also receive an intu Gift Card worth £50. 

In the last week of term, (w/c Monday 13 July 2015) both us and intu Metrocentre will each select a top teacher from the social media entries and go head to head in the final week on Twitter. The teacher chosen who receives the most retweets across the final week wins!
