Teachers Building Society was founded in 1966 to help teachers onto the property ladder. This aim still holds true today, and we work hard to ensure that our products reflect the needs of teachers and other education professionals across England and Wales.
We frequently achieve recognition for the quality of customer care we provide, with recent accolades including being nominated in the What Mortgage Awards eight years in a row for categories including “Best Local Building Society”, “Best Lender Website” and “Best Shared Ownership Mortgage Lender”. Over these eight years, we have either won or been awarded the status of “Highly Commended” for these categories. Most recently, in 2019, we won the award for "Best Lender Website". In 2018 we also won the award for “Best Use of Technology” from the Mortgage Finance Gazette for our mortgage application portal which was designed to meet the needs of intermediaries.
