The award scheme

The award scheme is open to all staff (academic and professional services) at Faulty level, from early career staff to experienced staff. Nominations should relate to the activity of an individual or group of staff.

Nominations should be made to recognise, value and reward staff for a demonstrable positive impact on learning and teaching / student experience activities. 

Each successful LTSE awardee is invited to submit an application for the Faculty Sir Alistair Pilkington Award. 

Annual deadlines for nominations are set by each Faculty.
