The Simon Greenall Award

This award celebrates the life and work of Simon Greenall OBE, who was a teacher, trainer, materials writer, president of IATEFL and trustee of International House. It’s sponsored by Macmillan Education, International House London and International House World.

Simon travelled the world and wherever he went he made friends, He was a great communicator and so the award in his honour is about bringing people together through learning English.

The award winner receives six hours of mentoring, as well as help in promoting and developing their project, making it more globally visible, as well as a small grant for equipment and expenses. The winning project could be new or already running.

The first mentors were Jill and Charlie Hadfield. Jill has an extensive career in materials writing and teacher training, and Charlie has worked with the British Council helping to develop English language teaching projects. 

The winner of the first award, which was presented in 2021, was the Dau Dau project run by Sirhajwan Idek and Nurazilah Othman of Keningau College in Sabah, Borneo, Malaysia. Their work uses folk tales to bring together the varied people of Malaysia with their different traditions and languages. Storytelling, dance, puppetry, theatre, and song are all part of the rich mix.
