World Teachers’ Day is held annually on 5 October to celebrate all teachers around the globe, and the theme for 2022 is “The transformation of education begins with teachers”.

To celebrate the positive transformation that teachers can have on their students' lives, the Royal Academy of Dance want to give you the chance to say thank you on this World Teachers' Day, with a special competition draw for our RAD teachers to win a year’s free membership.

Whether you’re a student, parent, carer or colleague, you can nominate an RAD registered teacher. If your teacher wins, you win a mystery prize of your own!

Our winner will be selected by random draw and announced on 12 October.

Entries will close at 9am, on 11 October 2022, and the winner will be contacted later that day.

To nominate your teacher, fill out our simple form below.
