    This 'extravaganza of congratulation' is on tonight at 6pm.
    Are any Tessers up for nomination?

    Presented by Clare Balding. We're dead, then. The profession is officially dead. This time next year and every year after that: Teachers in Need.

    Did you mean to say "works" at an academy? That young man looks like he attends one!

    The real heroes of teaching are unsung and just get on with the job.

    With the recent discussions on gender equality in mind, I'd like to point out that of the twenty-three recipients (including the 'Team English' horde featured in one of the programme's short films) only four are men. The first teaches rogue males in a prison, the second is a product placement ('Microsoft Expert Educator' who uses Minecraft in his classes) and the last two comprise the take-home message for all male teachers watching - an NQT and someone on the edge of retirement.

    Just what I was thinking... This sort of "show" is horribly embarrassing. Sportsperson of the year is dire but I can sort of get it. This: no.

    A resident of the Rat Trap? Marionation, certainly, but far from super. He's more likely a delayed Reid triplet:

    Now he has won the award he won't actually be put in a classroom surely, if he ever was! straight to head boy oops I mean chief exec or whatever nonsense they call themselves now. Wonder how many, if any, students passed through his hands?
    As real as a Kardashian reality?
