"At UCAS, we know early engagement is key in raising students’ aspirations of pursuing higher education. Teachers are a critical source of support when pupils consider their future pathways. The Global Teacher Prize is excellent recognition of the significant role teachers have in guiding students on their next steps and towards their future careers." Clare Marchant
