TEAs Winners Revealed

Last night the NUSU Teaching Excellence Awards ceremony took place at the Students’ Union, bringing together staff and students to celebrate the amazing work of Newcastle University staff members, and to announce the winners.

The (TEAs) is a student-led scheme aimed at recognising Newcastle University’s brilliant staff for their commitment to learning, on-going support and contribution to the University experience. Each year NUSU asks students from across the University to nominate members of staff who are providing outstanding teaching or support and thank them for their time and efforts. This year has been no exception as a record number of nominations were received, totalling 403, across the 11 categories.

Speaking after the awards, NUSU Education Officer Rowan South said, “Tonight has been a brilliant evening, celebrating a great year at Newcastle and showing what a credit the staff are to this University and how much students value their care and support. Congratulations to everyone who has been involved”.

The Education Officer continued: “I would like to take this opportunity to say a big thank you to all the students who nominated in this year’s awards, and offer congratulations to all the shortlisted and winning staff members. I would also like to thank everyone behind the scenes who planned and organised the awards and the ceremony, it has been a terrific year and I am sure Jonny will enjoy organising these awards next time around!”
