Winner of the Supportive Colleague award is Paul Sales, IT Trainer, Student Operations.
Paul was nominated for his key role in training and support for the rollout of KentVision, our new student management system.
On receiving his award, he said: ‘I feel overwhelmed and massively thankful to everyone who nominated me. Working with me is a fantastic team trying to make KentVision work for everyone. I wouldn’t want their work to go unnoticed – they have been incredible, relentless and just doing their best for staff and students.’
Paul’s nomination notes how he ‘has been a huge support and a primary contact for many colleagues with all manner of KentVision queries. His KentVision expertise and university business process knowledge has been invaluable for collating feedback and working with users and the KentVision team together to find ways forward.
‘He was directly involved with enabling divisional and central PSD colleagues, right from the start, to complete essential and urgent student records management work, including student assessment processing, examination timetable preparation, exam boards, student enrolment and registration, module registration to name but a few. He has seemingly endless patience, is incredibly knowledgeable, always ready to help, offer advice or just his ear for a rant.’
