Celebrating Inspirational Teaching and Outstanding Student Support

This year saw the 9th annual Inspirational Teaching and Outstanding Student Support Awards. Students were asked through a university survey to nominate academic or student support staff who had inspired them or had a transformative impact on their student experience, inside or outside the curriculum.

Across STA, a total of 190 nominations were received for the ITAs, and 82 for the Outstanding Student Support Awards (OSSA), although some members of staff were nominated across both categories. The selection process has now taken place, and we are pleased to announce that the following staff will be receiving ITAs and/or OSSAs this year;
