CQ vet nurse educator awards seek nominations
The awards will be presented at Central Hall, Westminster, on 9 March.
Nominations are open until 2 February.

Veterinary professionals and students are being asked to nominate candidates for this year’s Veterinary Nursing Educator of the Year Awards.

Organised by Central Qualifications (CQ), the awards celebrate the hard work and dedication of those involved in training and educating veterinary nurses in the UK, from college tutors to clinical coaches and other training team members.

The awards will be presented during this year’s CQ Graduation and Awards Ceremony at Central Hall, Westminster, on Saturday, 9 March 2024. The event will celebrate the achievements of both staff and students and will include a keynote speech from adventurer, author and presenter Ben Fogle.

Last year, Helen Clarke of Myserscough College and Nicola Newman of Plumpton College were awarded for their contributions to the profession.

Jacqui Garrett, CQ director, said: “The Veterinary Nurse Educator of the Year Awards are a great opportunity to celebrate the fantastic work of the people training the next generation of veterinary nurses.

“If you know someone who deserves recognition, whether a tutor who has inspired you on your journey towards joining the veterinary profession, or a colleague who goes the extra mile for their students, please do nominate them. It's a chance to give something back to those who give so much for others.”

Nominations can be made online. The closing date is Friday, 2 February 2024.

Professor Jeremy Tavare, pro vice-chancellor and executive dean for the Faculty of Health and Life Sciences, said: "I'm delighted to be celebrating Bristol Veterinary School's 75 years.

"Its excellence in teaching and research has resulted in greater understanding and some real-world changes benefiting the health and welfare of both animals and humans, which is testament to the school's remarkable staff, students and graduates."

RCVS HQ to temporarily relocate

The headquarters of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) is to move temporarily, ahead of its permanent relocation later in the year.

From Monday, 26 February 2024, RCVS' temporary headquarters will be at 2 Waterhouse Square, Holborn, London. This is within walking distance of its current rented offices at The Cursitor, Chancery Lane.

RCVS have been based at The Cursitor since February 2022, following the sale of its Westminster premises the previous March.

However, unforeseen circumstances relating to workspace rental company WeWork filing for bankruptcy means The Cursitor will no longer operate as a WeWork space. The new temporary location is still owned by WeWork.

RCVS anticipates that it will move into its permanent location at Hardwick Street, Clerkenwell, later on in the year.
