    Selected from over 24,000 nominations received by the Pearson Teaching Awards in 2013, 62 celebrations are taking place in schools across England, Northern Ireland and Wales on 17 May 2013 to present prestigious Regional Teaching Awards to outstanding local heroes of education.


    The Pearson Teaching Awards are an annual celebration of exceptional teachers and teaching. Founded in 1999 by Lord Puttnam, they recognize the life-changing impact of an inspirational teacher on the lives of the young people they teach.

    For the first time Dr McHugh was truly speechless as the staff at the College had successfully kept his win a secret for a painstaking 4 weeks! The assembly he delivered was abruptly brought to a close with the arrival of the award from a delighted Mrs Karen Duncan who stealthily hid it in her handbag!



    Dr McHugh has been involved in the development of Slemish College since its inception and opening in 1996. A passionate advocate for Integrated education, he has worked tirelessly to provide a world class, innovative and caring school which provides opportunities for students of all abilities, religious identity and social backgrounds. Through his own professional development and personal vision, he has promoted the close partnerships of parents, governors, staff and students - as well as developing a range of links and associations with partner agencies. HIs vision is of a world class school which is focused on high quality pastoral care, innovative teaching and learning, and promotion of an inclusive ethos.


    Oscar-winning actress Emma Thompson, president of the Teaching Awards said, ‘I am genuinely proud and honoured to be the president of the Teaching Awards. I owe so much of what I’ve done to my fantastic teachers at school and university and it is exciting to join in celebrating what is probably the most important profession of them all.’

    Dr McHugh will now join fellow winners at the UK final of the Teaching Awards on 20th October, filmed in London and broadcast by the BBC.

    Rod Bristow, President of Pearson UK said: "We want to recognise and support inspirational teachers, for their commitment to teaching and learning and improving the life chances of the next generation. It’s really important that we create opportunities to say thank you."

    The education space is one which is constantly evolving, and every school in the UK is thinking about how it can deal with these changes. From the new Ofsted framework and shifts in assessment to the National Curriculum and academy conversion, the goal posts are shifting and it can be impossible to keep up. School management teams are finding themselves faced with a fluctuating environment they are under pressure to adapt to and prepare for.

    The School Leaders Summit at Bett 2013 offers the senior leadership teams of K-12 educational establishments the opportunity to hear from other education professionals who can help make sense of all these changes. Held alongside the Bett exhibition, the School Leaders Summit will provide a forum for discussion of education issues and an expert perspective on how schools can best ready themselves for change. Educators who have been recognised for their outstanding practice will present inspiring case studies to motivate their peers and stimulate dialogue on how to promote excellence in education.

    Le professeur associé Ingela Lundgren de l'Académie Sahlgrenska (Göteborg) participe au projet européen OptiBIRTH qui a pour but d'augmenter le taux d'accouchements vaginaux après une césarienne (AVAC). En effet, de plus en plus de femmes choisissent l'accouchement par césarienne, augmentant ainsi les risques de santé à la fois pour la mère et pour l'enfant.

    Ce projet européen a reçu trois millions d'Euros de l'Union Européenne et implique douze instituts partenaires de huit pays différents, le Trinity College de Dubin (Irlande) étant le coordinateur du projet.

    L'AVAC est l'option la plus souhaitable, car le taux de mortalité maternelle est inférieur à celui des accouchements par césarienne répétés. Le taux d'AVAC varie d'un pays à un autre : par exemple, les taux d'AVAC en Irlande, Allemagne et l'Italie sont significativement inférieurs (29-36%) à ceux enregistrés aux Pays-Bas, en Norvège et en Suède (45-55%). "L'idée est que les femmes devraient recevoir un meilleur soutien. Mais elles devraient également s'impliquer davantage dans leur prise en charge, y compris par des changements dans les soins de routine et par des nouveaux programmes techniques et pédagogiques" ajoute Ingela Lundgren.

    Des entretiens seront menés auprès des femmes, de leurs conjoints, leurs médecins et sages-femmes dans trois pays avec des taux élevés d'AVAC (Finlande, Suède et Pays-Bas) et dans trois pays avec de faibles taux (Allemagne, Irlande, Italie). Suite à ces entretiens, un programme sera mis en place pour accroître la responsabilisation, l'engagement et la participation des femmes; le but étant d'augmenter le taux d'AVAC de 33% à 53%. Un essai clinique randomisé par grappes sera conduit dans les trois pays avec des faibles taux d'AVAC (Allemagne, Irlande, Italie) sur 15 unités de maternité (94 femmes par unité), dans différents milieux hospitaliers (petites, moyennes et grandes unités, sites à la campagne et en ville). Le projet débutera en septembre 2012 et sera mené pendant quatre ans. Dans la dernière phase du projet, les aspects socio-économiques seront étudiés.

    A team of researchers, led by Professor of Nursing and Midwifery Cecily Begley at Trinity’s School of Nursing and Midwifery, has been awarded € 3 million in European Commission funding for a research project that addresses the widespread concern over rising Caesarean section rates throughout Europe. The OptiBIRTH team comprises 12 partner institutions from eight countries, and includes service users, midwives, obstetricians, neonatologists, epidemiologists, sociologists, psychologists, bioethicists, health economists and a 'high-tech' small industry.

    The study examines the rising rates of Caesarean section throughout Europe, focusing in particular on routine Caesarean section following a previous Caesarean birth, despite calls for increased natural births after Caesareans. In comparison to Caesarean sections, natural births are associated with lower maternal mortality, less overall morbidity for mothers and babies, and are the preferred option for the majority of women. The rates for natural births in Ireland, Germany, and Italy are significantly lower (29-36%) than those in the Netherlands, Norway, and Sweden (45-55%). The aim of the OptiBIRTH project is to increase natural birth rates in Ireland, Germany and Italy from 33% to 53% through a complex intervention designed to increase women-centered care and women's involvement in their care. The project will use a cluster randomised trial in each of the target countries, with 15 clusters of 94 women in each.

    Professor of Nursing and Midwifery, Cecily Begley, lead researcher on the OptiBIRTH project.

    The partner institutions include Trinity College Dublin; Association for Improvements in Maternity Services, UK; University of Gothenburg, Sweden; Zuyd University, The Netherlands; University of Eastern Finland, Finland; University of Ulster, UK; Entando, UK; Queen's University of Belfast, UK; Medizinische Hochschule Hannover, Germany; National University Ireland, Galway, Ireland; Universita Degli Studi Di Genova, Italy; and Vrije Universiteit Brussel, Belgium.

    Allt fler kvinnor föder barn genom kejsarsnitt, vilket medför ökade hälsorisker för både mamman och barnet. Forskare vid Sahlgrenska akademin får tillsammans med kollegor tre miljoner euro från EU i ett projekt som ska öka andelen vaginala förlossningar efter tidigare kejsarsnitt.

    Antalet kejsarsnitt ökar världen över, men varierar stort mellan enskilda länder. I Sverige föds 17 procent av barnen genom kejsarsnitt; i Italien hela 38 procent. En del av ökningen beror på att kvinnor som tidigare använt kejsarsnitt rutinmässigt förlöses medkejsarsnitt även vid nästa förlossning.

    Öka andelen vaginala förlossningar
    Projektet OptiBirth får nu tre miljoner euro från EU för att öka andelen kvinnor som föder vaginalt efter tidigare kejsarsnitt. Forskaren Ingela Lundgren vid Sahlgrenska akademin är tillsammans med forskare från Irland, Belgien och England ledare för projektet:

    –Genom att ha kvinnans perspektiv i fokus och studera bland annat vårdrutinerna runt förlossningar vill vi öka förutsättningarna för kvinnor att föda normalt efter ett tidigare kejsarsnitt, säger hon.

    Sverige bland goda exempel
    Sverige, Finland och Nederländerna har hög andel kvinnor som föder vaginalt efter tidigare kejsarsnitt, 45-55 procent, och utgör internationellt sett goda exempel.

    –Tittar vi internationellt varierar siffrorna mer. I till exempel Tyskland och Irland är det bara omkring 30 procent av kvinnorna som föder vaginalt efter ett tidigare kejsarsnitt, trots att vaginal förlossning för de flesta kvinnor är det bästa alternativet för både deras och barnets hälsa i både ett kort och längre perspektiv säger Ingela Lundgren, barnmorska och forskare vid institutionen för vårdvetenskap, Sahlgrenska akademin.

    Testar nytt program
    I projektets första del ska forskare i tre länder med hög respektive låg andel vaginala förlossningar efter kejsarsnitt intervjua kvinnor, deras partners samt läkare och barnmorskor för att kartlägga vad dessa skillnader beror på. I nästa steg testas ett nytt, innovativt program vid 15 förlossningsenheter i Tyskland, Irland och Italien, länder som alla har låg andel vaginala förlossningar efter kejsarsnitt.

    –Syftet är att kvinnorna ska få bättre stöd men också kunna bli mer delaktiga i sin vård, bland annat genom ändrade vårdrutiner, nya tekniska program och utbildningsprogram, säger Ingela Lundgren.

    Ekonomiska aspekter studeras
    I den sista delen av OptiBirth kommer samhällsekonomiska aspekter att studeras.

    Forskningsprojektet OptiBirth, som involverar tolv forskargrupper från åtta länder, fick högst ranking av alla ansökningar till EU:s forskningssatsning FP7 på hälsa och innovation, ”Improving the organisation of health service delivery" och har kommit till stånd genom ett samarbete inom EU-COST-nätverket ”Childbirth Cultures, Concerns, and Consequences: Creating a dynamic EU framework for optimal maternity care”.
