Staff commended at awards celebration

Barnsley College Principal Chris Webb presents Boba Grubic with her Exceptional Contribution to Student Experience Award.

Employees from Barnsley College, Barnsley Sixth Form College and University Campus Barnsley have been commended for their inspirational work, commitment and dedication at the organisation’s Staff Star Awards.

Staff and students from the College were invited to nominate staff in four categories: Exceptional Contribution to Student Experience, Innovation in Teaching and Learning, Outstanding Colleague and Unsung Hero. Nominations were shortlisted and the judging panel, led by Barnsley College Principal Chris Webb, picked a winner and a highly commended runner up in each category.

Principal Chris Webb said: “It was lovely reading through the nominations and the awards are a fantastic way to celebrate the achievements and all the inspirational work of our staff who go above and beyond their usual duties. The judging panel found it very difficult choosing the winners and runners up due to the strength of the nominations so everyone who was nominated should be very proud indeed.”

Boba Grubic, a teacher in the English and Maths department, was crowned the winner of the Exceptional Contribution to Student Experience Award. She said: “I am honoured and genuinely surprised to win this award. It reinforces my belief that young people in our College are brilliant, bright and bighearted.”
