Staff who have completed one of the University's five leadership and management programmes have been recognised at the annual Leadership Awards.
The ceremony, which was held at the Hilton Hotel, celebrates all staff who have successfully completed Leadership and Management Development Programmes during 2012/13.
Speaking at the event the Vice-Chancellor Colin Riordan emphasised how important it was that leaders at all levels, in all areas of the University's activities used their role to enable positive change to happen.

How we, as leaders come across to other people; how we as leaders, notice and build on the positive aspects of other people's narratives; and finally how we as leaders help build a positive narrative for our institution.
93 people from the following five development programmes were then received their certificates from Jayne Dowden, the Director of Human Resources:
