NTU Fusion has been nominated for Outstanding Employer Engagement Initiative

Nottingham Trent University has been shortlisted for two prizes in this year's prestigious Times Higher Education Awards. The University is in the running in both the Outstanding Employer Engagement Initiative and the Outstanding Support for Students categories.

The winners of the awards - which aim to recognise exceptional talent, dedication and innovation from universities and colleges - will be announced on 27 November during a ceremony at London's Grosvenor House Hotel.

The nomination for Outstanding Employer Engagement Initiative is for NTU Fusion, a campaign launched by the University to provide services, facilities, training and expertise to the UK food industry. The campaign is based at the University's Brackenhurst campus, home to the School of Animal, Rural and Environmental Sciences.

The Outstanding Support for Students entry, meanwhile, was for a new tutor/student dashboard, an innovative piece of software using advanced analytics and designed to support the student learning experience.

The dashboard was developed, trialled and tested over the past eighteen months in collaboration with both tutors and students and its roll out across the University completes this month.  It brings together a wide range of information about individual students into a single location, such as library use, attendance in academic tutorials and grades, to allow tutors to provide the best possible support to individual students.

For ten years, the Times Higher Education Awards have provided a backdrop for UK universities to celebrate the best teams and individuals in higher education, and the most successful institutions. The awards recognise everything from research to widening participation and teaching to entrepreneurship.

In June last year the University won the Outstanding Estates Team category in the Times Higher Education Leadership and Management Awards, in recognition of the extensive and ambitious redevelopment of its three campuses.
