STAR Awards shortlist announced
A photo-journalism lecturer, a fire station union learning representative and a college chief executive are just three of over 100 people who have been short-listed for one of the 2009 Learning and Skills Improvement Service (LSIS) STAR Awards.
Now in their 6th year, the STAR Awards were created to celebrate and reward the unsung heroes who work in the further education and skills sector. LSIS says the awards recognise the hard work and dedication of people who have truly made a difference to those around them with their commitment, and their ability to help learners achieve and exceed their learning goals.
The award categories include:
The short list comprises over 100 nominees, including some teams, and can be viewed on the STAR Awards website
Dr David Collins, chief executive of the Learning and Skills Improvement Service said: "I am delighted that the people short-listed for the 2009 LSIS STAR Awards will have the national spotlight shining on them. "They are providing the skills that our learners need to help them achieve their full potential and drive our economic success. They should, rightly, feel valued to have been identified as 'STARs'.
"I am also heartened to see that nominations came from all parts of our wide and diverse sector and am pleased the judges found that the standard and quality is higher than ever. I warmly congratulate all of them and look forward to meeting them at the national ceremony on 26 November when the winners are announced."
Three regional events for the short-listed nominees and their nominators will be held in Leeds, Birmingham and London on 7, 8 and 9 October respectively.
The overall category winners will then be announced at a national awards ceremony at Old Billingsgate in London on Thursday 26 November.
