Category Description

Faculty Education Prize

This prize is all about rewarding the effort of employees who may not spend that much time in the classroom (anymore) but continue to contribute and improve the process of education in myriad other ways. Anyone who is involved in the process of education in the broadest sense and made a special contribution is eligible for this prize. This can be anyone at any level going the extra mile by (for example) investing extra time and effort into streamlining and renewing existing process or introducing innovative ideas to improve the study/workplace at the FGB.

This prize is specifically NOT rewarding effort in class (they can be nominated for the Teacher Award).

What is your mission? 

The Official Secretariat's mission is to ensure the best overall support for our examination boards, so they can do what they are supposed to do: maintaining and assuring the quality of examinations, thereby guaranteeing the value of our degrees.

We also support the admissions boards and many other processes.

How do you approach this within the online and physical educational environment? 

We receive students’ requests and questions/reports from teachers etcetera. We answer where possible, ask for further information, draft preliminary advices, and mail the decisions taken by the boards. Given the duties of the boards, not all requests can be honoured. Therefore, understandably, we do not only have fans... Just know we’re working hard for everyone.
