Each UCL Faculty can award one individual or team in each Educational Award category from a list of colleagues nominated by Departments. Exceptional individuals and teams from amongst these winners will receive the Provost's Education Award, which will be announced on 10 June.

The Faculty Team Education Award to the Institute of Archaeology includes individuals based both at Archaeology South-East (ASE) and Gordon Square (IoA). The winning team - including Bill Sillar, Mark Roberts, Charlotte Frearson, Andrew Gardner, Judy Medrington, Andrew Reid, Dorian Fuller, Sandra Bond, Louise Rayner, Mark Lake, Matthew Pope, Alex Allen, Hannah Gibbs and Jon Cogdale - have worked consistently over the last 3 years to ensure students gain the skills and transferable skills necessary for careers in archaeology or beyond.

Collectively, the team have embedded skills development within teaching and practical training, and as a result the Institute recently gained professional recognition through Chartered Institute for Archaeologists (CIfA) and Universities UK (UAUK) Accreditation for all its BA and BSc degrees - an important milestone in undergraduate Archaeology teaching.

Gaining this award acknowledges the very significant effort put in to education by the Institute's winning team, and their willingness to share this experience with colleagues across UCL.

Congratulations are also given to Institute research student Clare Lewis who was selected for a Faculty Education Award for academic support, with a focus on personal tutoring, while Institute alumna Stacey Hackner received an award for excellence in the role of Postgraduate Teaching Assistant.
