The University has been shortlisted in the Best Internal Communications Campaign or Initiative category for its work engaging staff and students in the 2017 National Student Survey (NSS) campaign.
The Leeds Trinity campaign aimed to galvanise the University’s unique sense of community and empower all staff and students to take ownership of student satisfaction in a way that reflected the Leeds Trinity ethos where all students are ‘a name not a number’.
As a result of the campaign, the University achieved an overall student satisfaction score of 90 per cent, making it the top mainstream university in Yorkshire for overall student satisfaction and 18th out of all UK universities.
Julie Dodd, director of marketing, communications and recruitment at Leeds Trinity University, said: “We are delighted to be shortlisted for a Heist award and have our work recognised as being amongst the best in the sector. It’s a fantastic achievement and testament to the hard work of Leeds Trinity’s marketing team.”
According to Havas Education, who host the awards, the shortlisted entries in the category show how a refreshing, innovative campaign or initiative has engaged internal stakeholders.
Other universities shortlisted include: Loughborough University, Nottingham Trent University, The Glasgow School of Art, University of Aberdeen, University of Central Lancashire, University of Hertfordshire, University of Hull, University of Lincoln, University of Manchester, and University of Stirling.
The winner will be announced on 12 July at an awards ceremony in Manchester.
