The Education Awards (TEAs) 2019


Nominations for The Education Awards (TEAs) are now open!  The TEAs are your chance to nominate members of staff who you think have been outstanding and helped improve your student experience at the University. This year we have nine categories which you can nominate members of staff for. These categories are:

Professional Services Staff Member of the Year

Outstanding Contribution to Pastoral Support

Outstanding Contribution to Equality, Diversity and Inclusivity

Outstanding Contribution to Feedback

Taught Supervisor of the Year

Research Supervisor of the Year

Outstanding Contribution to Teaching*

Student Choice Award

*There will be one Outstanding Contribution to Teaching Award for each Faculty and one to cover both the University’s two Overseas Campuses the University’s Campus in London and the University’s INTO provision.

How to Nominate

To nominate a member of staff for an award you need to complete the nomination form. To complete the nomination you will need to answer the following question about the member of staff:

Explain why you have nominated this member of staff for The Education Awards and in your chosen category. In your explanation, detail how you feel this has had a positive impact on your University experience.

To give the staff member you are nominating the best chance of winning, it is important that you go into detail when answering the question. Examples of comments written about some of last year’s winners are highlighted in the Category Descriptions page.

The information we gather from your nomination is really important to us as we may share your comments anonymously:

  • With the member of staff you nominate
  • Your Head of School or Institute
  • The University’s Learning and Teaching Development Service
  • In TEAs publicity
  • In reports and presentations

This not only helps makes the member of staff feel amazing but it also helps us to represent your academic interests as we can highlight to the University what you think makes great teaching and support, so hopefully they do more of it. By completing the nomination form, you agree to us sharing the content with the above. Please note, at no point will your personal details be disclosed.

Nominations close at 9am on Tuesday 5 March 2019. We will then shortlist between three and five members of staff for each award. The winners will be announced on Thursday 9 May 2019 at a glamorous awards ceremony, which you will be invited to if your nomination leads to a member of staff being shortlisted and you study at the University’s Newcastle campus.
