This year we held our first Staff Awards at our annual Summit Event in June. This was a chance for students to thank the academic and support staff who have had the biggest impact on them during their time at college.
Seven awards were presented at the Staff Awards. Four 'Teacher of the Year' awards, one per faculty. The other categories to nominate in were Outstanding Course, Staff and Student Collaboration and Support Staff of the Year.
In each category, we asked students to let us know the full name of the person they were nominating, their faculty, and why they were nominating them. You can view the full list of nominees here. The judging panel then shortlisted these nominations, which you can view here. The eventual winners were as follows:
Teacher of the Year Creative Industries - Giovanni Giacioa
Teacher of the Year Education & Humanities - Pamela Barron
Teacher of the Year Hospitality & Leisure - Mandy Hayward
Teacher of the Year Nautical & STEM - Manhel Alnasser
Outstanding Course - HNC/HND Radio
Staff and Student Collaboration - Gemma Slater - Fish Week Buffet
Support Staff of the Year - Paul Norwood
