Frequently Asked Questions
Will my submission be made public?
Highly inspiring submissions (as chosen by our review panel) will be shared publicly on our website and the four most inspiring submissions (one per province) will be recognised at the Teachers Inspire gala dinner on October 4th.
When is the submission period?
Submissions will be accepted until the end of June 2019.
When will I find out if my submission has been chosen?
We will be in contact in late July, after we have reviewed all the submissions.
How many teachers will be recognised?
Four, one each from Munster, Leinster, Connacht and Ulster.
The teacher that made a difference in my life is no longer alive. Can I still nominate them?
Unfortunately not. Teachers Inspire is about recognising and celebrating teachers who are still living (currently teaching or retired).
I live in Northern Ireland? Can I nominate a teacher who teaches here?
Teachers Inspire is only open to submissions from the Republic of Ireland at the moment. We hope to be able to extend the initiative to the entire island of Ireland in future years.
Where is the gala in October being held?
It will be at The Helix, on DCU’s Glasnevin campus.
I have a query about Teachers Inspire that isn’t answered here. Who can I contact about it?
Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will attempt to answer any other questions you may have.
