NADP Awards Scheme: The ‘Deb Viney’ Award for an Individual Disability Practitioner 2017

Published on

This award is given in Deb’s name to honour her major contribution to the sector. Deb Viney, who died in 2014, was one of the founders of the National Association of Disability Practitioners (then named the National Association of Disability Officers). She worked tirelessly to promote good practice in the sector and gave invaluable support to many colleagues both nationally and internationally.

The National Association of Disability Practitioners annually recognises one member of the association for their contribution to making a positive difference to the experiences of disabled students and/or disabled staff in the post-compulsory education sector.

We are now requesting nominations from NADP members for this award which will be sent to a panel selected from the Board of Directors. The panel will consider all nominations which should include information about one or more of the following criteria:

  • Members who have made a contribution to the advancement of professionalism in higher or further education services for disabled students or staff in their institution or beyond
  • Members who have delivered an excellent service to their team, department or institution
  • Members who have contributed in ways that extend beyond their substantive duties and responsibilities
  • Members who have made an outstanding contribution to raising the profile of the Association.

Deadline is midnight Friday 21st April 2017.
