Adam Bean, Technology Technician, won the Technology Award at the Chad’s 2016 Best in Schools Awards Evening on 21st June 2016.
The award was about how a staff member introduced technology into the learning environment to encourage cooperative learning and student collaboration.
Adam was nominated by the Technology faculty because he isn’t just a Technician – he’s the go to person of the faculty and others in the Academy. Adam supports in lessons and has been instrumental in giving students the opportunity to apply their knowledge and skills to real life tasks – this has included supporting the site team with painting and decorating a new classroom as part of the students’ course. Adam has a great work ethos and is adored by staff and students alike.
Sarah Bland, Director of Learning for Technology, said “Adam absolutely deserved to win this. He goes above and beyond all the time and is extremely supportive with the students (and us staff!). He’s so modest too but we’d be lost without him!”.
