Student Led Teaching Awards 2016

The fifth annual Student Led Teaching Awards ceremony was held recently, celebrating the high standard of teaching and pastoral support at the University. Nominations have more than doubled since last year which goes to show that more and more students are recognising the importance of the quality of teaching on their education.

Of the 700 nominations, academics and non-academics were nominated for their hard work in 15 categories, and this year there were two special recognition awards.

A special recognition award was awarded posthumously to senior English Literature lecturer, Dr Stephen Colclough. He passed away suddenly in October 2015, and will remembered for his great energy and dedication to teaching.

Lydia Richardson, Students’ Union VP Education and Welfare, and one of the organisers of the evening, said: “The SLTAs are a fantastic experience to be a part of. The awards celebrates the partnership that staff and students have and it should be something that every University should strive for.”
