Practice Excellence Awards

The Practice Excellence Awards celebrate the outstanding achievement of placement providers, and the contribution of placement colleagues who provide support to students’ learning in practice.

These awards are an opportunity for the School to thank the excellent support and contribution of its placement partners and gives them the recognition they deserve as voted first-hand by students.

Students who have had an excellent placement experience, or an exceptional supervisor are invited and encouraged to nominate them for a Practice Excellence Award and Supervisor of the Year Award. Students may submit up to two nominations, providing they nominate a different placement each time. Information about the criteria against which students need to judge placement areas is detailed on the award nomination form.

Nominations are judged by a Placement Panel comprising of members of the SHS Practice Education Committee. Winners are presented their certificate and prize at the School of Health Sciences Annual Award ceremony.
