NBS voted Outstanding School of the Year

NBS have been voted School of the Year by the students of Nottingham Trent University in a competitive category with nine other schools.

Nottingham Business School is delighted to announce that we have been awarded the School of the Year award at the NTU Outstanding Teaching Awards 2015. Nottingham Trent Students Union (NTSU) received hundreds of submissions over the course of the year all of which recognised the excellence of teaching and support that staff at NTU provide for its students.

Melanie Currie, the Associate Dean of NBS, said "The award is tremendous news for the School and a great achievement, particularly as it is voted for by the NTU student body. The award is in a very competitive category with the other nine Schools within the University all competing for the accolade. It is also evidence of the hard work and dedication that has taken place over the academic year. Nottingham Business School would like congratulate all staff on their nominations and awards, giving us great recognition across the University."

Both support and academic staff were nominated for an award. The support nominees for NBS were Helen McElroy, Alison Fox and Isobel Heffernan. All three were recognised for their commitment and dedication to the students they support. The winner was Alison Fox.

A student nominating Alison said "Alison is kind, compassionate and willing to help all students. She is encouraged us to get involved in extra-curricular events that will help develop us academically. Alison also inspires us to through sharing her own experiences of studying, ensuring we stay motivated."

The Academic Nominees for NBS were Daniel Wheatley, Seamus Allison and Rachel Welton. All three were recognised for their outstanding support and approachability no matter what the issue. The winner was Seamus Allison.

A student nominating Seamus said "Seamus has been incredibly approachable, not only as a course leader, module leader and seminar tutor, but also my personal tutor. He's been really helpful whenever I've had questions also making a personal effort to ensure that feedback we've raised has been resolved quickly."
