How were our Awards judged?

It is important to the SA that every nomination made to both our Staff and Student Awards holds as much value as the next. For this reason, our judging process is purely focused on the content of each individual nomination and not on the number of nominations received. We have mapped how we judged the nominations below. 

Stage 1 - Initial Screening    

The SA team will complete a screening process to ensure nominations are eligible. Any nominations that don’t include practical examples or are not in-keeping with the spirit of the awards will be considered incomplete. Anonymisation will also happen at this stage.  

Stage 2 - Scoring Panel Criteria for Shortlisting    

The shortlisting panel for the Student Awards was made up of staff members from the Student Engagement and Students Association team who have had no additional involvement in the awards process. The shortlisting panel for the Staff awards was made of up student volunteers. These panels were sent all the relevant nominations that had been through the initial screening and anonymisation.  

For both awards the panel was asked to rate each nomination based on how best the nomination demonstrates the College’s Way.  

  • Inspiration - Rate 1 – 4  
  • Excellence– Rate 1 – 4  
  • Innovation – Rate 1 – 4  

Each of the panellists' scores were collated and the top nominations passed to the next stage.  

Stage 3 (Staff Awards- Scoring Panel for Final Winner)  

Top nominations from the shortlisting were made available for the student judging panels to discuss together. The nominations from the two panels were swapped to ensure fairness in this next stage. Here the panels took a more qualitative approach discussing questions such as: 

  • Which nomination makes you feel most proud to study here? 
  • Which nomination makes you wish you had that class? 
  • Which nomination generates an emotional response from you? 

In this discussion the student panels decided collectively on the final winners of each category.

Stage 3 (Student Awards- Scoring Panel for Final Winner)   

Following the quantitative process at stage 2, the final panel, made up of senior members of staff from the Student Experience Directorate, will adopt a more qualitative approach by considering questions such as:  

  • Which nomination makes you feel most proud to work with students at the City of Glasgow College?  
  • Which nomination generates an emotional response from you?  

Each member of the panel rated the shortlisted nominations in order of preference. These scores were collated to find the final winners.
