Art lecturers of excellence recognised at Newbury College

Two Newbury College Art lecturers, Sarah Gordon and Victoria Burden have both been awarded Certificates of Excellence in the Pearson National Teaching Awards 2020.

Newbury College and West Berkshire Council have been working together to ensure that residents of West Berkshire Care homes were able to have a creative outlet, during a time in which contact with the outside world has been severely limited. The overwhelming response received from residents has led to this creative display being transformed into a virtual art exhibition, for the whole community to share.

Hairdressing student, Liza-Jane Lamb, has picked up her scissors for a different type of cut, in support of the NHS. Instead of cutting hair she has been cutting material to make scrubs and other vital equipment to help keep care workers protected.

Foundation Learning workers at Newbury College have been recognised for their hard work and dedication by Laura Farris MP, who has commended them as West Berkshire Community Champions.
