Rebecca Varnouse recently received the 'Physiotherapy Practice Placement Educator Excellence Award’ for providing an outstanding level of guidance and support for students on practice placement in the academic year 2017/2018. She was nominated by a student who supervised in A&E.

“It was a lovely surprise! I was nominated by a 2nd year student that I had on placement in A&E. I also got to meet up with several other students that I had been educator to at the graduation ceremony,” said Rebecca on receiving the award.

"It really meant a lot to receive lovely feedback from the students, and also their parents. It made me realise that being a clinical educator and how you treat your students can really have a lasting impression."
