Kent Law School gains awards for outstanding learning support

Kent Law SchoolKent Law School has long had a reputation for the quality of its learning support – and this has now been acknowledge properly at the annual University Teaching Prizes.

The teams of staff at Kent Law School’s Skills Hub and Student Advice Office have both been awarded a £1,000 Barbara Morris Prize to acknowledge their excellent practice which has very much enhanced the student experience at Kent Law School.

Kent Law School’s Skills Hub team provides guidance and support to law students both online and in-person from their office based in Eliot College.  The Skills Hub Director, Dr Horsey, says, “Our team works hard to respond to the individual needs of our students who arrive highly differentiated by previous educational experience. It’s extremely gratifying to see their work being rewarded and to see the hugely positive impact the Skills Hub continues to make to the student experience at the Law School.”

The School’s Student Advice Office works with academic staff to monitor attendance and academic progress and to provide confidential and personal academic support to law students.

The Head of Kent Law School, Professor Toni Williams, says, “The staff in both teams make an outstanding contribution to the student experience at the Law School and are all dedicated, professional, experienced and empathetic. They support a large and diverse student body that has a broad range of distinctive needs, many of which are specific to the study of law and thus require specialist subject expertise as well as strong student support skills. We are delighted that their work has been recognised by the University in this way.”

Kent Law School’s Skills Hub and the Student Advice Office will be presented with their prizes by Professor Dame Julia Goodfellow, Kent’s Vice-Chancellor, at an awards ceremony on Wednesday 5th October.
