Design Alumna receives Outstanding Technology Teacher Award

Sarah Washbrooke has been awarded the 2019 Outstanding Technology Teacher Award by the Technology Education New Zealand Council (TENZ). Sarah graduated from Loughborough in 1997 with her degree in Industrial Design and Technology with Education.

Since graduating, Sarah has been teaching Design Technology in both England and New Zealand for over 20 years, and her recent award recognises her high quality work that has developed teacher understanding and confidence over a long period. 

The award was created to provide professional recognition of excellence in technology education, and is made every two years based on nominations by the TENZ council and members.

Sarah posted:

“I can honestly say without my learning at Loughborough, I would never have achieved this.

Adding "A big thank you to all of my old lecturers”.

Congratulations Sarah.
