Dr Jackie Brearley & Katheryn Ayres - Cambridge University Student’s Union (CUSU) Student-Led Teaching Awards 2016

The winners of these awards have been announced by CUSU; just over 700 nominations were received and we are very pleased to let you know that two of our staff have won awards this year:

Dr Jackie Brearley, Senior Lecturer in Anaesthesia, and Director of Studies at Lucy Cavendish College, in the Lecturer category

and for the third year running, Katheryn Ayres, Academic Support Officer, in the Student Support Category

Jackie said of her award “This means so much to me because the award is from the student body." 

Katheryn agreed with Jackie and added “It was a lovely surprise to hear that I had won this award.  I am lucky to be supported by great colleagues, in particular my tutorial office colleague Rachel Worsley."

The CUSU Student-Led Teaching Awards are a unique opportunity for students to recognise the exceptional contribution those who teach and support them have made to their education. The Awards are organised by CUSU, and any student at Cambridge is able to nominate. The judging of the Awards is carried out by a panel of students.  The Awards and Commendations will be presented at a ceremony on Thursday 5th May, at which students and staff will celebrate the excellent teaching and student support which takes place everyday across the University.
