  • Impact on colleagues as well as students

The selection panel noted Jeremy's innovative approach to teaching, promotion of student engagement, and contribution across undergraduate, PGCE and teaching leadership roles. Jeremy joins an illustrious line of Department of Education colleagues who have received this award in previous years. 

The department were also successful in receiving nominations for seven colleagues across different programmes and categories in this years YUSU Excellence Awards. These are student led, and some colleagues received nominations in more than one category.
