The inaugural awards were held in 2017 with over 100 nominations.

Education Secretary Kirsty Williams said: “Last year we recognised some incredibly dedicated teachers and staff from all corners of the country and we’re looking forward to meeting even more inspiring individuals this year.

“Our teachers are central to our national mission to raise standards and make sure our children and young people reach their full potential.

“Nominations are now open and we would love the people of Wales to take a moment to put forward teachers and staff so we can recognise the best from across Wales.”

Nominations are open until November, with the winners announced in May 2018.
