Dean's Shared Purpose Awards

The Faculty of Health and Wellbeing continues to support and promote positive ways of working which will support the delivery of our Vision and therefore our SharED Purpose. This is embodied within our strap line – ‘Encouraging, Enlightening, Enriching’ - which promotes the way of working expected within the Faculty.

Enacting this strapline in our ways of working, aims to promote culture change within the students and staff experience and support our students on their journey to become ‘High Quality Graduates’.

To recognise this cultural change the Deans Annual Awards were created to celebrate the quality and achievements of our students, our staff and our external stakeholders.

The winners of the 2019 Deans SharED Purpose Awards are as follows.

"Winning this award was such a nice surprise, a happy ending to my return to practice studies. Returning to nursing after a long career break was a daunting prospect, but the support I received from the course leaders and my fellow students was wonderful. I am so pleased to have made the decision to come back. Thankyou everyone, and good luck to you all."

Laura’s comments about the award:

"Being nominated alone was an honour in itself, for being acknowledged as someone worth mentioning with such positivity. This was an experience that I will forever cherish as I look back at my previous years at University. It was a pleasure to be part of an event that celebrates people’s contributions and achievements."
