Silver and bronze for marketing excellence in the HE sector

Anglia Ruskin University won silver and bronze last night at the 2011 Heist Awards, which recognises excellence in Higher Education marketing.

Alison King, from Anglia Ruskin’s Higher Skills@Work team, claimed the silver award for the Best Business / Community Engagement Campaign, while Joanna Nowak won the bronze award for the Best Part-Time or Short Course Publication.  Gayle Daley was also shortlisted for an award after being nominated in the category of Best Postgraduate Prospectus. 

“Higher Skills@Work is delighted to have won the silver Heist Award for the Best Business / Community Engagement Campaign,”

said Alison King. 

“The award recognises innovation and best-practice marketing for our work in promoting Anglia Ruskin’s work-based learning programmes to the retail sector.

“This area is going from strength-to-strength, with Timberland recently becoming the latest major high street name to recognise the benefits of their employees obtaining a qualification from Anglia Ruskin.”

Joanna Nowak, who oversees production of the part-time prospectus, said:

“It is a privilege to have received a bronze award for the part-time catalogue and this reflects the high quality of our prospectuses, as well as all the hard work and effort we put in to producing these publications.”

Last night’s ceremony, which was the 21st Heist Awards, was held at the Queens Hotel in Leeds, and the awards were presented by the actor and writer Simon Callow.
