We are incredibly proud to announce that Mr Ebrahim has been shortlisted within the final 50(!!!)for the #GlobalTeacherPrize 

He has been recognised for his incredible achievements in computing.

His dedication to teaching stems from the realisation that every child deserves an equal chance to thrive academically and personally. As a specialist teacher of computer science, he actively seeks opportunities to make a positive impact on both teachers and students in the field, such as taking on the role of the West Midlands Computing Hub's Champion, providing revision sessions for computer science teachers nationwide and helping them prepare for the Subject Knowledge Skills Test conducted by Teach Computing UK. As well as sharing his expertise and supporting educators to help enhance the quality of computer science instruction across the country, he has dedicated his time to supporting local primary schools with their computing curricula, visiting them to deliver engaging computing lessons to students aged 6 to 11.  

Believing in instilling an interest in computing and technology from an early age, he organised a primary computing challenge event at Bishop Challoner with 11 primary schools invited, and personally visited each school to deliver drone sessions for their students. Over several weeks, he trained 30 of his Year 8 and 9 students to facilitate the activities; the event such a success that Birmingham secondary schools approached him to organise similar events for their schools. Babak Mashhadi-Ebrahim has delivered and scheduled events for other schools to engage over 400 primary school children and over 200 secondary school students, inspiring them to envision a future in technology and computing, perhaps even careers in working with children.
