The Palacof Dreams was honoured to welcome President Cyril Ramaphosa on 6 October to address the 21st National Teaching Awards. Peermont CEO Nigel Atherton was on hand to welcome the SA President, long with Minister of Basic Education Angelie Motshekga and other distinguished delegates.

Emperors Palace is proud to be part of this event which recognises and celebrates outstanding educators who, often under challenging circumstances, remain committed to their noble craft and produce extraordinary outcomes. Teachers nominated represent the diverse nature of schools across the country and will be awarded for their excellence in the following categories: Grade R Teaching, Excellence in Primary School Teaching, Excellence in Secondary School Teaching, Excellence in Secondary School Leadership and a Lifetime Achievement Award.

The 21st  edition of the Awards has been benchmarked against worldwide teacher award strategies such as the African Union Teacher Prize, the Commonwealth Education Awards and the Global Teacher Prize.
