We asked a few of our experts why they were dedicated to the Outstanding Award process, and here is what they had to say!
‘I’ve always been really impressed by the creativity and innovation of the projects that the students have done, and I’ve been inspired by how they have put their ideas into action in their own time. This is such an important programme for Bristol University, because it’s really helping to develop the leaders, innovators and pioneers of the future.’ James Fortune, Head of Service, Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust
‘Achieving the Outstanding Award demonstrates that a student is willing to go above and beyond what is required or expected of them. It shows their capacity to offer meaningful contributions to topics and areas beyond what could be considered a student’s ‘normal sphere of influence’ Leah Eatwell, Community Led Housing Enabler, Ecomotive.
‘Without doubt, at the heart of the Outstanding Awards are the students themselves. Their drive and ambition, their dedication to their projects, and the benefits such endeavours provide for the wider community is truly inspiring.’ Matt Gibbs, WGGB Award nominated writer and editor
