Read all about the big night!
The TEAs are the annual student-led teaching awards that are hosted by the Vice President Education, to recognise the best of Strathclyde's teaching staff. Being student-led means it is solely students who nominate, shortlist, and pick the winners.
This year’s event was extra special, as we welcomed the shortlisted staff and guests to 51 Richmond Street. This is the 1st TEAs in the new Union building as well as the Union’s 1st on campus awards ceremony after 2 years of holding these types of events online!
Savvina, VP Education had this to say about the ceremony:
“I’m delighted to welcome [everyone] to celebrate the contributions and excellence of staff across Strathclyde, in person after 2 years. The support, enthusiasm, and engagement of staff with students has helped overcome the challenges of this year, improved students’ learning experience and created an environment where students can thrive. Students have nominated over 500 academic and non-academic staff, with nominations from all our faculties. I am very excited to dedicate this evening in recognising excellence in Strathclyde and I hope that you enjoy this celebration in our new building! I would like to thank you for your invaluable support and care for students this year!”
The programme of events was headed up by the drinks reception on Level 1 of the Union where attendees could mingle and enjoy a glass of prosecco on arrival. Then after food on The Terrace the ceremony and presentation of awards was underway in the Venue.
