Cheshire College celebrates outstanding staff across all Campuses 

The outstanding achievements of Cheshire College – South & West staff were recognised at their annual Staff Awards Ceremony in Crewe and Ellesmere Port. 

The awards were presented during the College’s Staff Wellbeing Day, an event that takes place at the end of the academic year together to provide staff members with an opportunity to reflect on and celebrate the year’s achievements and focus on personal development and wellbeing before the Summer break. 

The staff awards are a much-loved part of the day as it’s a way to honour those who have been an exceptional example of the College values for their students, the wider community and their fellow staff members. 

Held at Crewe and Ellesmere Port, the awards highlight teaching and non-teaching staff across all three Campuses. 

Nominations are welcomed from all members of staff and the final winners are selected by Cheshire College’s Executive Leadership Team.   

From outstanding contribution awards to the awards for the unsung heroes of the team, the awards shone a light on those who have truly gone above and beyond.   

HR Director at Cheshire College – South & West, Lisa Woodman, says: “The annual staff awards are a fantastic way to shine a light on the incredible talent we have at the College. The volume and quality of nominations we receive each year is a true testament to the great community we’ve built across our Campuses.  

“It’s incredibly rewarding to reflect and celebrate on the positive contributions our staff make to College life.”
