TES Resources MeTime Promotion
Terms and conditions

  • Promotion open to existing TES Members aged 18 years of age or over.
  • To be eligible you will need to upload a teaching resource to www.tes.co.uk between 6 March 2012 and 30 April 2012.
  • All qualifying resources must be uploaded before the closing date of 30 April 2012 by midnight.
  • A fortnightly prize draw will run during the promotional period for all TES members who upload valid qualifying resources during this promotional period. A new prize draw will take place each fortnight with one winner only being drawn from entrants from the respective two weeks. Entries will not be rolled forward.
  • Entrants can only win one fortnightly prize. A fortnightly prize winner is still eligible to win the grand prize.
  • There will be 4 fortnightly prize draws in total, taking place at midnight on the following dates:
    • Monday 19 March 2012
    • Monday 2 April 2012
    • Monday 16 April 2012
    • Monday 30 April 2012

There is one prize to be won in each fortnightly draw. Each winner will be selected at random, from all valid qualifying entries received, under independent supervision.

  • The member who has submitted the most qualifying teaching resources between Tuesday 6 March 2012 and midnight on Monday 30 April 2012 will win the grand prize.
  • The member who has submitted the second most qualifying teaching resources between Tuesday 6 March 2012 and midnight on Monday 30 April 2012 will win the second prize.
  • The member who has submitted the third most qualifying teaching resources between Tuesday 6 March 2012 and midnight on Monday 30 April 2012 will win the third prize.
  • For the purposes of this promotion, a qualifying resource is defined as:
    • At least one file (Word, PowerPoint, Excel etc) upload per resource page. A web link on its own to other resources' websites will not qualify for entry.
    • Original material, created by the person who submitted the resource.
    • Appropriate content for the intended target audience and learning objective.
    • Correctly mapped to a subject/topic on the site, with a meaningful description (including, where necessary, details such as learning objective and how to use the resource) and title
    • Appropriate classifications added to each resource page i.e the key stage, subject, topic (and subtopic if relevant)
    • Titles and descriptions of resources must not be duplicated. Any resources with duplicate titles will NOT be counted. Descriptions should not be a repeat of the title and must be 'descriptive' of what the resource is e.g. what is it? how can it be used?
    • For the purposes of this promotion, a single resource page will be counted as one resource only, regardless of how many files are attached to that resource page.
    • Resources must be unique i.e not a duplicate resource, or a previously published resource that was taken down and then republished in the promotion timeframe.
    • Resources uploaded with negligible differences between the original and the duplicate will NOT be considered qualifying resources and will therefore not be counted e.g. resources created using a template with minor variations applied.
    • In the interest of fairness, resources which have been created using any kind of online generator / template / macros etc. will not be considered. Using such software to maximise number of resources will be considered an unfair advantage over other entrants.
    • Resources which have been clearly split into multiple documents and uploaded as individual resources will NOT be considered qualifying resources and will therefore not be counted e.g. a single page of a Scheme of Work uploaded as a whole resource with relevant information missing, or worksheets that are related to a shared lesson plan that do not make sense in isolation.
  • Any resources not considered by the promoter, in its absolute discretion, to be qualifying entries in accordance with these terms & conditions will not be counted as part of the number of submissions and may be removed from the site. We reserve the right to disqualify any resources we deem unacceptable, so please bear this in mind before you upload a resource. We reserve the right to disqualify a user completely from the promotion if the first 5 resources we audit do not meet the requirements of these terms & conditions. For more information on resource upload compliance please visit the do's and don'ts guide If in doubt, please contact tes.resources@tsleducation.com before uploading your resource.
  • Joint entries are not permissible.
  • Syndicated entries or those made using methods such as a computer macro, a script or the use of automated devices or processes are not allowed and all such entries will be disqualified.
  • Resources must remain on the site for at least one year after the closing date of the competition. TSL reserve the right to revoke any prizes awarded if resources are removed.
