Top Teacher Award 2017

Thank you to everyone who nominated for the Top Teacher Award 2017. Over 100 students nominated a tutor who they felt had made a significant impact on their time at Macclesfield College. The winner and runners up were chosen based on the quality of the nominations, and were independently verified by an external party.

Here is your winner and runners up with just some of the fantastic comments we received.

Winner
Dawn Bours
Lecturer in Hair and Beauty

"As a pupil I have always struggled understanding the information but the way dawn teaches I understand everything! From a student who got 3 out of 11 GCSEs I am now on target to get a merit because she has made me believe I can do it. She makes the lesson fun and enjoyable. I feel like if I was to have any problems I could go to her and she would understand. She is a great teacher, she won't let us give up is always praising us on our work - I couldn't fault her."

Runners up
Chris Kendal
Lecturer in Mechanical Engineering

"Ever since he started being our tutor, he has gone above and beyond for our group. He is a very reliable tutor and he has a good way of teaching, he brings in personal experiences as examples."

Katie Aldous
Lecturer in Catering and Hospitality

"I'm a first year student and she was so welcoming and made me comfortable in my new surroundings. She's so motivating and inspiring. One of the friendliest people I've met and helps encourage me to do my very best with all my work."
