Nominations open for VN Educator Awards
CQ ceremony will celebrate exceptional educators

Awarding body Central Qualifications (CQ) is inviting members of the profession to nominate candidates for this year’s Veterinary Nursing Educator of the Year Awards.

The awards ceremony, held annually at Central Hall in Westminster, recognises the hard work and dedication of staff who support veterinary nursing students.



Last year’s joint winners were Kirsty Gwynne, of Abbeydale Vetlink Veterinary Training Ltd, and Karen Saddleton, from Central College of Animal Studies. Nominators praised their tireless efforts, commitment and passion for teaching.

The awards are open to anyone involved in training and educating veterinary nurses in the UK; from college tutors and practical teachers to clinical coaches and other members of the training practice teams.

All members of the veterinary profession, including student vets and veterinary nurses, are eligible to nominate somebody they feel is deserving of recognition.
