The Rex Walford Award is for trainees or teachers who have just started their careers, including students enrolled on a PGCE, Teach First and Schools Direct alongside NQTs and colleagues at a similar stage in their careers.

Linked to the Young Geographer of the Year competition, 2017's Rex Walford Award asked entrants to produce a short scheme of work, covering at least three lessons that focused on the question ‘What is the geography of your favourite place?’

The winner of the 2017 Rex Walford Award is Rhianne Quigley, a teacher at Wales High School.

Details of the 2018 Rex Walford Award will be released in April 2018.
