The Portsmouth Teaching School Alliance was delighted to be invited to the Pamodzi Creatives celebration of Inspirational Women of Portsmouth on 6th March 2020. Not only was the evening a fantastic showcase of Portsmouth’s inspiring and talented women from all sectors of society, it was a huge honour for us as three of our members were nominated for the Education Award. The award was won by one of them – Laura Watford SLE, who was nominated for the STEM work she has grown throughout the city with the Teaching School, from Science networks to support from the Royal Academy of Engineering going straight into Portsmouth schools. Laura was extra impressive as she brought along her week-old baby Millicent who was surely the youngest inspiration in the room! Sarah Hilditch SLE and Teaching School Director Sophie Venables were also nominated for the award and we are extremely proud of all three of them.
