Uzma Siraj Wins 2023 Cambridge Dedicated Teacher Awards Regionally

Pakistan’s 2023 Cambridge Dedicated Teacher Awards regional winner is Future World School’s Uzma Siraj.

Cambridge University Press’s Cambridge Dedicated Teacher Awards honour teachers worldwide. The tournament got 11,000 nominations from 99 countries this year. 30% more nominations than last year.

Students, parents, and other instructors can nominate an outstanding primary or secondary teacher in the global competition. In its sixth year, the awards honour teachers worldwide and give children a chance to say “thank you.”

Uzma Siraj was chosen regional champion in Pakistan this year for self-teaching Urdu, supporting her students, and organising a flood relief charity campaign.



“I’ve always had a passion for teaching and helping those more in need—whether that be supporting students with day-to-day tasks or providing external pick up and drop off services,” Siraj said after winning. We must provide a safe, comfortable, and skill-building atmosphere to motivate pupils. This recognition of my classroom efforts and beyond makes me proud of my kids.

Cambridge University Press Publishing Director for Education Matthew Walker stated, “The achievements of our 2023 regional winners, plus the thousands of nominations we received for the competition, speak volumes for the value of teachers’ roles and the positive impact they have on students. We hope this award will drive teachers to produce great teaching and inspire the next generation of learners to achieve high”.

Uzma Siraj, a regional winner of the 2023 Cambridge Dedicated Teachers Awards, will receive £500 in books or digital resources, a trophy, and school marketing. From February 2024, she will appear on a thank you page at the front of Cambridge University Press Education textbooks.

The public can vote for their favourite teacher among the six regional winners to win the Cambridge Dedicated Teacher Awards 2023. June 6, 2023, will reveal this.
