Trainee teacher shortlisted for national education award

Chloe Johnson

Thu 10th January, 2019

A student from the University of Bedfordshire is in the running for a national education award.

Chloe Johnson, who is currently studying the Primary PGCE course at the Bedford campus, has been shortlisted in the British Education Awards.

Chloe said: “I feel extremely proud to be nominated for this award. It will be great to represent my university at the ceremony, and even better, if I actually win the award. I am very grateful to by lecturer Mieka Harris for her nomination and her continuing support throughout my university experience.”

Chloe was nominated by her lecturer Mieka Harris for achieving a first class degree at the University last year, and for her contribution to creating a self-led trail at the Higgin Museum in Bedford, allowing more schoolchildren to visit the museum.

Dr Sally Bentley, Executive Dean of Education & Sport and Health & Social Sciences at Bedfordshire, said: “We encourage students to get involved in community projects like this and it’s great to see Chloe’s trail recognised. This will be great for children visiting the museum and for Chloe’s own career prospects.”

The British Education Awards promote the merits of a British education on both a national and international stage, celebrating the success of individual students, whether at school, college, university or vocational level.

Chloe will find out if she has won her award at a gala dinner and ceremony in Manchester on 31 January.
