Head of School, Prof Teresa McCormack commented:
“Tim has been a fantastic advocate for our students with disabilities within the School, ensuring that the needs of such students are given proper consideration by all staff. He has also been a huge source of support to students themselves, and I am delighted that several students nominated Tim for this award, along with the School itself. This demonstrates their appreciation of all the work he has put in over the last year during very difficult times.”
Tim said about his award:
“I am delighted to be nominated for my work with students with disabilities. The transition to online learning with Covid-19 in March 2020 came with particular challenges for our students with registered health conditions. However, the systems we had designed ensured appropriate support could be provided to these students by all school staff. As a school, we are extremely committed to our students with disabilities, and I’m incredibly keen that all our students feel at home in the School of Psychology, having the resources and support to achieve their full potential.”
