A team from Newman University has been nominated for a prestigious national award; Advance HE’s Collaborative Award for Teaching Excellence [CATE].

The award scheme is run by Advance HE who are dedicated to helping higher education shape its future. CATE recognises and rewards collaborative work that has had a demonstrable impact on teaching and learning. Introduced in 2016, the scheme highlights the key role of teamwork in higher education.

The team of students and staff at Newman University, led by Sarah Parkes, Tutor for Retention and Transition at Newman, are working on how student data can best be used to enhance support for student engagement.

Students and staff from the team have already presented on their work at national conferences and events and are seeking to transform the way in which Newman identifies and supports students in need of help with their academic engagement.

One student involved in the project is Aaisha Akhtar; you can read an article written by Aaisha on the SEDA website.

Congratulations to all involved and we wish you the best with your nomination.
