The ECSA-llence Awards are about recognising the best of Edinburgh College. It's our way of thanking the extraordinary people at the college who make such a massive impact on us through their work, and to recognise their excellence and devotion to students.
Do you have a lecturer that goes above and beyond the call of duty? Or do they give great feedback on assessment? 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? It only takes a couple of minutes to submit your nomination - show the love for those that deserve it!
Please give as much information as you can in the supporting statement as that's the only information the judges will have to decide on. You can submit as many nominations as you like, but please keep them to one person at a time.
Prompt, clever or useful ways of delivering feedback to you about your work, learning or even your progress through college. ECSA wants to know who does it and why does it help you learn?
