Staffordshire University academics win national teaching award

A team of academics from Staffordshire University have won a national teaching award – a prestigious award that celebrates their unique collaborations with industry.

The team are from the School of Law, Policing and Forensics at Staffordshire University, and they were announced winners of the Collaborative Awards for Teaching Excellence (CATE) at a recent ceremony that was held at Westminster. The CATE awards recognise learning collaborations that benefit the students’ experiences and were hosted by the Higher Education.

Associate Dean of the School of Law, Policing and Forensics, Dr John Wheeler, says,

“We are all very pleased and excited to have won this award. It recognises the great work that the School has been doing in collaboration with police forces to enhance the employability skills of our students and contribute to the advancement of policing in the UK. It acknowledges the outstanding efforts of a great team and I am very proud of them and their achievements.”

The team has developed collaborations with police forces including the Staffordshire Forensic Partnership as well as other initiatives. These initiatives all help to provide a great range of opportunities for students.

Head of Forensics at Staffordshire Police, John Beckwith, adds, “I’m delighted that the Staffordshire Forensic Partnership has been recognised through the CATE awards. Our team, led by Claire Millar, have been key to complementing those at the University to establish and develop student learning opportunities within Staffordshire Police Forensics.

Staffordshire University is one of six winning teams, and the prize includes a grant of up to £15,000 for the teams to share their learning.
