Edge Hill University has been shortlisted in four categories in the inaugural Educate North Awards.

Edge Hill, which is currently the UK University of the year, has been shortlisted for the awards staged in association with the Daily Telegraph for New University of the Year and Business School of the Year.

Vini Lander, Professor of Education and Head of Research in the Faculty of Education, and senior lecturer Toni Bewley, in the Faculty of Health and Social Care, have both been shortlisted for Lecturer of the Year.

Finally the University’s Capital Developments Team has been shortlisted for the Environment Award.

Educate North aims to celebrate the success and growth of the knowledge sector across the North of England.

Dr John Cater, Vice-Chancellor of Edge Hill University said: “Being shortlisted in four categories in the inaugural Educate North Awards is a significant achievement and is yet another reason to celebrate during our hugely successful year where we have already been named University of the Year and best University Workplace, produced World Leading research in the latest Research Excellence Framework (REF) and scored highly for our student experience.

“This announcement underline the hard work and dedication put in by everyone at Edge Hill to deliver the best experience, teaching and research and highest quality buildings and campus environment possible.”

The winners, shortlisted from across the North of England will be announced at an awards ceremony in Manchester in June.
