A secondary school teacher in Queen’s Park has been awarded for his outstanding commitment to his work.
Kishon Green, who teaches at Queen’s Park Community School in Aylestone Avenue, was presented with the outstanding teacher award at the Design and Technology (D&T) Excellence Awards last week.
He said: “I am delighted to have been awarded the outstanding teacher award, especially with so many equally deserving peers. D&T has been and continues to be my life.
“The materials and technology we use in D&T continually evolve but what remains constant is the enthusiasm of the students and their creativity.”
The awards now in their 16th year follows on from the recent launch of the D&T Association’s 10-minute video “What is D&T and why do we need it?” that can be seen at data.org.uk.
Aimed at students, parents and employers, the video demonstrates the importance of D&T in a balanced school curriculum and how it is a modern, creative and challenging subject.
It also reveals why, with the current skills’ shortages in the creative, manufacturing and engineering industries, it is a valuable subject for all young people to study.

Richard Green MA, chief executive of the Design and Technology Association, said: “Parents, at the very least, want their children to undergo a positive education experience so they can make something of themselves.
“Kishon Green and his fellow award-winners have gone above and beyond what might be expected in delivery of D&T teaching and, in raising the bar high, they have equipped their pupils to not only make something of themselves but also to design and make other things too.
“The youngsters in his classes will have been inspired by Kishon’s commitment and vision and learned D&T skills that many employers in the design engineering and manufacturing sectors will find very attractive.”
