Bernice McCabe OBE, who sadly passed away in February 2019, was the founding Co-Director of the PTI and believed in the transformative power of inspiring subject teaching. To remember Bernice, and to promote inspiring work driven by the values of the PTI, we have created the Bernice McCabe Award. The Bernice McCabe Award will be awarded annually to a practising subject leader in a PTI member department.

The judges considered departments that demonstrated the values of the PTI, empowering all teachers to be advocates for their subject and introducing pupils, regardless of their background or ability, to challenging and enriching materials. Here are the ten shortlisted school departments for 2020.
