Leek professional named as UK's School Technician of the Year

18 October 2010
Local professional, Julie Moore, who works at Churnet View Middle School, in Leek, has been named as the Technician of the Year at The National Association of School Business Management (NASBM) Awards for School Support Staff 2010. The award, which was sponsored by Hays Education, the leading recruiting expert, raises the profile of support staff within schools. Julie was named the winner at an awards ceremony which took place on the 9th October 2010 in London.

Roop Bhumbra, Strategic Director at Hays Education, comments: “The nominees are put through a rigorous judging process both regionally and then nationally, making it a fantastic result for both Julie and Churnet View Middle School. We are proud to sponsor this award as it rewards and recognises outstanding and hard working technicians such as Julie.”

Julia Turner, Headteacher at Churnet View Middle School, comments: “Julie’s official roles include the preparation of teaching resources, displays and data, but this does not fully describe her contribution to the school. She is the one we all turn to in times of need for her humour and practical common sense. From raising funds for charity to repairing a broken door, she can be found at the heart of every aspect of school life – all to ensure that the pupils thrive in a vibrant, learning environment. Julie is a true professional; respected by all she thoroughly deserves this recognition and has made a very real difference to many lives.”
