Award Winners

Thank you to everyone who took the time to write and submit nominations in 2020 for the Teaching Hero Awards. Every nomination matters. Submissions are now closed. Award winners were announced at the Student Achievement Awards Ireland event on 29 April 2021. View the announcement below.

The Teaching Hero Awards are Ireland’s only national, student-led awards for all those who teach in higher education.

The Awards are organised by the National Forum in collaboration with the Union of Students in Ireland and other students’ unions nationwide. They provide an opportunity for students across the country to recognise and celebrate outstanding teaching in our higher education institutions. Teaching Heroes are nominated by individual students, who submit a short personal piece (a maximum of 150 words) that explains why the person is their ‘Teaching Hero’. Based on student nominations, all Teaching Heroes identified, with their agreement, receive national recognition.
