To nominate a member of staff for an award you need to complete the TEAs nomination form. To complete the nomination form, as well as including some personal information, you will need to answer the following question about the member of staff:
Explain why you have nominated this member of staff for The Educations Awards (TEAs) and in your chosen category. In your explanation, detail how you feel this 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.
However, when you write your nomination form, it is important to understand that we will not be judging the nomination on how you write it. We will purely be looking at why you think your staff member is exceptional. So for example, you could write the whole nomination in bullet points.
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 9 am on Tuesday 2 March 2021. We will then shortlist between three and five members of staff for each award, depending on the award, with the winners announced at the end of April.
