We are pleased to announce the winners of this year’s BUAFTAs!

At the 10th annual BUAFTAs awards ceremony on Friday 17 February, shortlisted nominees and guests from across the University gathered in the Great Hall for a very special “10 years of BUAFTAs” themed evening.


The winners and Commendations for each award were as follows: 

Team of the Year: The IT Service Desk

The IT Service Desk does a fantastic job providing IT support to staff,students and visitors. They respond quickly to queries and are always polite,upbeat, friendly and approachable.

The team has coped so well with the huge number of calls they received during Welcome Week and the opening of the new Library. With IT andtechnology being an essential part of everyday life, they are an essentialcog in the University machine!

Commendation: Cleaning Services Training Team

The Cleaning Services Training Team has worked tirelessly over the last12 months, training all of the University’s cleaning staff to enable them to achieve an industry-recognised qualification.

This was a huge achievement, especially given the challenges of staff shortages and the fact that English is not the first language of many staff.The team should be commended for their efforts in helping to maintain a first class cleaning service across the University.
