Every year we host the ECSA-llence Awards to recognise the ECSA-llent work done across all parts of Edinburgh College. 

Staff and students constantly work to improve the learning and teaching experience at Edinburgh College and we want to recognise the dedication and extraordinary work we witness on a daily basis! 
The ECSA-llence Awards are purely student led and all nominations come from students so this is your chance to nominate.

Do you have a lecturer that goes above and beyond the call of duty? Or someone who submit constructive and useful feedback on assessments? Is their method of teaching innovative?

Did a support staff member help you stay on at college? Or do you have a Class Rep that's an inspiration to yourself and/or others?

The award categories are listed below and it only takes a couple of minutes to submit your nomination!

On the nomination form you need to include a supporting statement, this is what the shorlisting panel will use to make their decision so please include as much information as possible. The shortlisting panel will consist of the current full time student officers as well as the newly elected officers.

You can submit as many nominations as you like, but please keep them to one person at a time.
