A big congratulations to our winners Dr Ela Rogers, Chris Elven, Christina March, and Tahera Huda. We caught up with some of the winners; Chris Elven a Principal Lecturer in Economics who won 'Outstanding Personal Academic Tutor' said "I was delighted to be given an award for personal tutoring. Over the years I have worked with a host of committed and caring colleagues who recognise that London Met students need and deserve an effective personal tutoring system. Some of their influence must have rubbed off on me!"
 
Christina March our student Employability Engagement intern won the 'Outstanding member of support staff' award she was so shocked and tired after her amazing solo Bollywood performance but we managed to catch her, she said "I'm so overwhelmed and feel honoured to have won the award. Thank you so much for nominating me! Well done to the London Met Students' Union team for an amazing Awards Ceremony evening. Congratulations to all the nominees and winners." 
 
This year the Students Union decided to add an extra special award 'The Unsung Hero' which celebrates members of staff work behind the scenes and not always student facing to help students. This award went to Tahera Huda the placements and employability officer, shocked is an understatement for Tahera when she found out, she said "I am so honoured to be awarded, but I am glad that I had some impact on supporting and facilitating students to excel with just a little push of support and encouragement in the right direction."
