This year’s Staff Oscars, hosted by the Students’ Union’s Education Network, took place on Wednesday 15 May for our UK campuses.
The annual Staff Oscars event was set up by students to recognise inspiring staff across the institution – at all levels and professions – for the positive impact they have on the student experience.
The event is entirely student-led with a panel made up of course reps, faculty and education reps, as well as postgraduate reps. Staff were nominated for a variety of awards, including Best All Round Teacher, Best Welfare Support and Best Member of Support Staff.
Professor Michael Randall, who won the award for Best All Round Teacher, said: “I was thrilled that our students chose to nominate me for a Students’ Union Staff Oscar. Teaching has become a privilege, and being able to work with and teach such talented Medical and Pharmacy students over many years has been a genuine pleasure. It was great to see the Students’ Union working hard to recognise teaching and student support activities throughout the staff community.”
