College Rewards IT Whizz

James Vernon has become the first recipient of the Professional Recognition Award, awarded by Doncaster College to its staff.


The Awards were launched in late 2011, to recognise the professional contribution that staff make towards the work of the College. The award will be given 3 times a year so a member of staff will be honoured once a term.


James Vernon, 23, a field support engineer from Corporate IT Services has won the award for the autumn term.


Staff are nominated by at least 5 colleagues from different areas of the College. The College’s Executive team then views the nominations and decides on a winner.


Nominees said James was, "patient, empathetic and always pleasant and professional when helping people, regardless of how busy he is. He always takes time to listen and will go out of his way to find a solution and provide feedback."


James, from Westwoodside near Doncaster, has worked at the college for 11 months. He said, "It was an honour to be the first to receive the Award and I'd say to anyone who wants to win it just do what you enjoy otherwise you won't put the effort in."


His prizes include the use of a Nuffield Health and Fitness pass for 2 weeks, a meal for two at the College's Waterfront Restaurant, a spa package, and a professional profiling session with Xenonex.


The Staff Development team is currently inviting nominations for the spring term Award. Nominations should be made internally to them by 13th March.
