Over ten members of the Business School staff have received nominations in the Student Led Teaching Awards. Staff members including Keith Cook, Charles Knight, Fiona Syson, Debbie Callaghan, Sean Naughton, Natalie Counsell, Penny West and Pat Smith have all been nominated by students for their teaching excellence or their support as personal tutors. The awards run by the Student’s Union are now in their third year, and are a chance for students from all years to have their say who they feel deserve recognition for their hard work and commitment to student satisfaction at Edge Hill University. Winners will be notified in July and will be recognised with a Chancellor’s Award that will be presented during the summer graduations.
