Brighton Students’ Union Awards 2021
The Brighton Students’ Union Awards 2021 took place this week and we’re delighted to announce three fantastic wins for the school:
Course Leader of the Year
Congratulations to Patricia Fordham.
Patricia was nominated for being a supportive and enthusiastic course leader, as well as championing varied teaching and assessment techniques on their course.
Volunteer of the Year
Sam McNeff, Nursing (Child) BSc(Hons) Rep & Nursing Society Committee Member.
Sam was nominated due to her commitment to being President of the Nursing Society by creating a supportive experience and organising mental health focused events for nursing students, and her ongoing work as a Course Rep.
Sam was also nominated for Undergraduate Rep of the Year.
Society Event of the Year
Congratulations to the Occupational Therapy Society.
The committee arranged two placement check-in events for two different cohorts. They applied their own experiences to help create events that promoted community and support.
This event provided a space where students could support one another, share ideas and experiences. The committee identified that the start of placement can be a highly stressful and emotional time, so this event meant that the students were able to access some supportive and familiar faces.
The events were held via Zoom scheduled during the first week of the student’s placement. This event was arranged and scheduled specify at a time that society knew that their members needed supports and community.
Congratulations also to:
- The Nursing Society, nominated for Society of the Year
