University of Bradford physiotherapy team wins national award for excellence
The Physiotherapy and Sport Rehabilitation team at the University of Bradford has received a national award for its teaching excellence.
They have been recognised with the most prestigious team award available for learning and teaching in Higher Education – the Collaborative Award for Teaching Excellence (CATE) from AdvanceHE.
Speaking about this great achievement, Vice Chancellor at the University of Bradford, Professor Shirley Congdon, says, “This is an outstanding team of professional physiotherapists, and academics, working collaboratively with students, service users and other stakeholders to advance healthcare in creative and innovative ways. To receive this award is a great achievement and one that the team fully deserve.”
Meanwhile, Dean of the Faculty of Health Studies, Dr Pam Bagley, enthuses, "I am enormously proud of our team of dedicated staff who have worked so hard. We have a fantastic team of staff and students who run a superb service for the local community and beyond. With support from our staff, students are graduating with excellent job prospects and invaluable practical experience.”
The prestigious CATE recognises the Bradford team’s creation of a pioneering Physiotherapy Clinic, which was developed in collaboration with employers, students and staff. Their progressive work at the University of Bradford has also transformed teaching and practice in Physiotherapy and Sports Rehabilitation, and is being used to help and guide other institutions.
AdvanceHE is an independent non-profit organisation committed to world-class teaching in higher education.
