Heist judges shortlist Anglia Ruskin in three higher education categories

Anglia Ruskin University’s marketing team are celebrating after being nominated in three categories for the prestigious Heist industry awards.

The judges of the Heist awards, which recognise excellence in further and higher education marketing, have shortlisted Anglia Ruskin in the categories of Best Postgraduate Prospectus, Best Part-Time or Short Course Publication and Best Business / Community Engagement Campaign.

Senior Marketing Executive Gayle Daley, who is responsible for Anglia Ruskin’s postgraduate prospectus, said:

“After the success of receiving the bronze award last year I’ve developed the new prospectus further, taking on board feedback from both internal and external audiences.

“I tested the 2011 prospectus at last October’s postgraduate information event and it was received really well by prospective students so I’m confident it has the winning ingredients.”

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

“It’s fantastic we have been nominated for a number of Heist awards and it reflects the high standard and quality of our publications here at Anglia Ruskin.”

Anglia Ruskin’s Higher Skills@Work team liaise closely with businesses to develop flexible work-based courses to meet the needs of employers and their staff. Commenting on the nomination for Best Business / Community Engagement Campaign, Marketing Manager for Higher Skills@Work Alison King said:

  “Our innovative and leading-edge qualifications in the retail sector have been developed for numerous high street names, including Harrods, Ridgeons and Specsavers. 

“This Heist nomination demonstrates Anglia Ruskin University’s strength in the provision of work-based degree-level learning, as well as our creative approach to marketing our services to employers.”

Anglia Ruskin’s marketing team are based cross-campus in both Cambridge and Chelmsford. The winners of the 21st Heist Awards will be announced at a dinner held at the Queens Hotel in Leeds on 26 May 2011.
