THE EMBROIDERERS’ GUILD BERYL DEAN AWARD FOR TEACHING EXCELLENCE IN EMBROIDERY AND DESIGN IN TEXTILE ART – 2016
We are looking for teachers who can demonstrate effective and ongoing teaching success. Our search is for people with a talent that will provide the next generation with an outstanding practitioner; individuals who generously and tirelessly inspire and enhance the learning experience and care passionately about the future of embroidery.
The prize pool is £1,000 to help inspire the winners to take their practice and teaching to an even higher level. Two awards are available. One is open to those teaching in a Further or Higher Education institution in UK or Ireland. The other is for those involved in an established teaching practice in adult and community education. The criteria for both awards are the same.
Applications for the 2016 Award are now open.
The final deadline is Friday 22nd January 2016.
Interviews of shortlisted candidates will take place in London on Wednesday 9th March 2016
Teachers may nominate themselves, or a peer or student may initiate an application.
For further information of the award and the full application pack are from the the Embroiderers’ Guild website :- here.
Applications will be judged on the basis of evidence offered in response to the Award Criteria and referee statements.
