The winning teacher will be crowned North East Teacher of the Year 2015 and will be rewarded with an all-expenses paid pamper day in the form of a £300 intu Gift Card.
The runner up will receive an intu Gift Card worth £50.
Regional marketing manager, Karen Carr said: “Our gift cards are a really popular thank you gift so we thought launching North East Teacher of the Year 2015 would be a perfect way to join local students and parents in saying thank you to our special teachers.
“The intu Gift Card can be used in both the north east shopping centres; across hundreds of retailers, restaurants and leisure facilities and are the perfect present for any hard working teacher.”
