Hull College Duo Nominated For Pastoral Care Award


8:56 am

Hull College’s very own Attendance Intervention Officers (AIO’s) have been nominated for an NAPCE award for outstanding pastoral care to students.

The National Association for Pastoral Care in Education recently announced that Andy McCartney and Julie Grantham have been included among the finalists for the Pastoral Team of the Year award, with the duo invited to represent the college at the awards ceremony next month.

The care and support that Andy and Julie gave to students who were at-risk, due to their attendance, was a key factor in helping to secure a number of positive outcomes for those students.

We are also pleased to report that the college itself has been selected as a finalist in the Outstanding Contribution to Pastoral Care award category.

The awards evening, which is being held at Worcestershire County Cricket Club, will take place on Friday 7th October 2022. Anyone wishing to book tickets to attend can do so here.

Now in its third year, the National Awards for Pastoral Care in Education continues to go from strength to strength and deserving nominees have been selected in seven categories by an independent panel of judges made up of educational experts.

The National Awards for Pastoral Care in Education Awards was created to highlight excellent practice in pastoral care and to celebrate the people making a real difference in the educational experience of young people. It also encourages new initiatives and ideas in pastoral care and recognises the contributions being made to developing policy and practice in pastoral support.
