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, and the inaugural award was given to the Music Department at Mounts Bay Academy, Penzance. They developed a school record label to raise outcomes, bringing together an entire school and its local community.
