Winstanley College’s Head of Biology, Jenni Burgess Thomas, has been awarded for excellence in STEM teaching at the ENTHUSE Celebration Awards.
The ENTHUSE Celebration Awards event is an eagerly awaited annual event, celebrating the impact of professional development on teachers, technicians, schools and colleges in the crucial areas of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). This is the first year this event has been held in the North of England.
Jenni gained first place in the FE sector for her innovative and creative input into STEM subjects within the college and the wider community. Activities have included initiatives such as Biology Week, where hundreds of pupils from local schools visited the college and experienced what opportunities a career in science can bring.
Jenni said: ‘I’m overjoyed to have won this award. The STEM activities on offer in college are ever-growing and we have a fantastic bunch of students who love getting involved. I’m really excited to be going to the national finals which will be hosted in London at The House of Commons.’
