"Nottingham Trent University is delighted to sponsor the Nottingham Post Education Awards.
It’s important that the achievements of young people are recognised and celebrated so that they understand how their contribution to society is valued. It’s a pleasure to be involved in these awards and to honour the success of young people from across Nottinghamshire.
One of the five key themes of NTU’s strategy is Creating Opportunities, which underpins our commitment to developing the knowledge, skills and resilience of our students to play a positive role in society.
Our students have repeatedly demonstrated how highly they rate the quality of our courses, the teaching and facilities at Nottingham Trent. Our approach to providing a fantastic student experience is recognised with our recent The Times and Sunday Times Modern University of the Year 2018 award win. This caps a year of excellent achievements, following the University’s highest possible ‘gold’ rating in the Government’s Teaching Excellence Framework, and a satisfaction score of 89% in the National Student Satisfaction Survey - the fifth highest score amongst mainstream universities.
To some of the award recipients, university life might seem a fair way off, especially if they are at primary or secondary school. At NTU however, we feel that it’s never too early to start learning about the opportunities higher education can offer.
We hope that the awards will be a source of inspiration for future generations and help create the opportunity for more students to make a difference to people’s lives".

"At the University of Nottingham we are committed to the development of local education. Our outgoing vice-chancellor, Sir David Greenaway, and Lady Susan Greenaway, have been strong advocates for the University of Nottingham’s role in supporting education in the region andour newly established Greenaway Scholarship aims to remove financial barriers for ambitious students from low-income families in the East Midlands. We have also launched a new Foundation Year programme which offers local students an opportunity to gain a place on one of our Arts and Humanities degree courses. We are delighted to support the Nottingham Post Education Awards in order to celebrate the often unrecognised achievements and hard work of students and teachers in a range of educational contexts in Nottingham".
