Learning & Teaching Commendation

4 December 2013

The Design team picked up a Commendation at the College Development Annual Awards recently. The Awards recognise the talent, skills and achievements of colleges, their staff and learners, and highlights outstanding projects and initiatives taking place in colleges across Scotland.

The Learning & Teaching Award recognises a college that has launched or developed imaginative and creative ideas to improve effectiveness of learning and teaching. Our nomination in that category was for the Induction Programme, an internal mentoring strategy where our NC, HNC and HND groups collaborate on a project during the first week of their respective courses/sessions.

One of our longest serving mentors, Alan Lennon (Lennon Design) accompanied tutors Alex Gunn and Chris Hughes, and Vice Principal Julie McCran, to the Raddison Blu in Glasgow for the ceremony, which was hosted by Sally Magnusson.

This completes a hat-trick of awards this year for the course, along with Best Education Event (Highly Commended, Scottish Event Awards), Innovation (Highly Commended, SQA Star Awards).
