Aston Excellence Awards For Staff: Recognising Outstanding Achievement


Aston’s Strategy has a compelling and inspirational vision: In 2020 Aston will have an international reputation as the source of the people and the ideas that will shape the businesses and the communities of tomorrow.  Aston Excellence Awards have been established to recognise outstanding contribution towards the achievement of our vision.  Our mission and vision have two core aims: developing internationally sought-after Aston Graduates and delivering world-leading Aston Research, and each member of staff has a role in fulfilling these aims. 

The Awards will recognise the contribution of individuals, for some Awards team contributions, and for each Award there is an established process for nomination.  Please read carefully the criteria for each Award, and the process of nomination for that Award, as they do differ from one another.

Each Award requires a statement to be written which presents the detailed information supporting the claim for excellence.  A template is provided which should be used to write the statement; this will help both the writer, and the panel members who will be judging the awards.  These templates, and the documents detailing each of the Award criteria and the nomination process, are presented below for downloading.  The deadline for receipt of nominations is 12 noon on 16th June 2014; nominations should be submitted electronically to s.j.hosten@aston.ac.uk.  Guidance on completion of templates and general information can be found here.

If you have any queries, or require paper copies of the documents, please contact Sarah Hosten, Staff and Graduate Development.
