Hear from the nominators...
She has had to spend hours preparing resources, agonising over logistics and finalising lesson plans for these sessions..Her understanding of what makes a successful session are second to none, and everybody benefits from her hard work.
He has gone over and above in planning and delivering a workshop for my KS3 students at the university, raising aspirations and inspiring travel and discovery, as well as promoting Spanish.
He is extremely organised and dedicated to the project and has strived to ensure the best possible experience for all of the volunteers
They are kind, helpful, generous with their time, and very good ambassadors for Warwick Volunteers.
The team have been outstanding and are incredibly proactive and just get on with their roles with the minimal of fuss. Therefore, it’s very easy to overlook the huge amount of work that they do behind the scenes.
As a team they have worked well together, stepping in and covering for each other when needed and being willing to take on whatever needed doing to achieve their goals.
