It has been a difficult year but there are staff members who have helped students through this tough time. Transforming Education Awards is a space to celebrate the staff members who have gone above and beyond to support their students.
These awards are completely led by students - the categories and criteria were created by students; the nominations all come from students; and students decide who receives the awards. At the SU, your Education Officer, Postgraduate Officer, Faculty Reps & Department Reps have worked hard to develop a range of categories that they feel are important to students. Maybe there has been a staff member who has helped you through a tough time, made you feel welcome through use of digital, ensured the student voice has been heard and acted upon, or made your time at Warwick this year better in another way. This is the time for their hard work to be recognised.
