Celebrating and remembering 20 Years' service for One Awards colleagues

30th September 2020 Date of publication

Three members of One Awards staff reached 20 years’ service over the last 6 months, Ann McCluskey, Dave Johnson and Sue Scheilling as part of the Quality Assurance teams covering both NOCN Qualifications, Access to HE Diplomas and Bespoke Accreditation. 

20 years’ service: Ann McCluskey – One Awards Lead External Quality Assurer

Ann’s association with One Awards started in the 1990s when she worked at Teesside Tertiary College, which became Middlesbrough College. She then moved to Middlesbrough Adult Education Service where she was the centre contact for TROCN provision (our former incarnation). She applied to be a subject moderator for a wide range of Health and Social Care and Entry Level courses in September 2000, becoming a Quality Reviewer in 2007 and joining the One Awards office-based team as Lead Quality Reviewer in November 2012. Ann’s dedication to providing excellent support for our centres and EQAs, whilst upholding the robust quality standards One Awards is known for across all our provision, is testament to her commitment to all learners and the opportunities One Awards accreditation provides. From everyone at One Awards thank you Ann for your hard work and commitment over the years.

20 years’ service: Dave Johnson – One Awards External Quality Assurer

Dave’s association with our organisation also dates back further than 20 years as he was previous involved with one of the Open College Networks in the North East – County Durham and Wearside Open College Network (CDWOCN). In September 2000 he was appointed as a TROCN Moderator for Art and Design courses, which at the time included Access to HE. Dave became an Access Lead Moderator for a while, taking the decision to focus on his role as, what had then become, a Quality Reviewer, in 2011. Dave is known for his calm, methodical and supportive approach and his detailed reports which highlight best practice and offer constructive advice to his centres from his many years of service to One Awards. From everyone at One Awards thank you Dave for hard work and commitment over the years.

In memoriam and celebration of 20 years’ service: Sue Scheilling – One Awards Access to HE Lead Moderator

Our dear colleague Sue Scheilling passed away in August this year after a short illness. She had dedicated her life to caring for and supporting others through her career as a nurse and midwife, as a senior lecturer in Midwifery at Teesside University and through 20 years of service to One Awards and Access to HE as a Lead Moderator. Sue’s tenacity, boundless energy and commitment to championing the transformational effects of the Access to HE Diploma has positively impacted on thousands of students on their journey to new careers and fulfilled lives, and also the provider staff and One Awards colleagues she supported and mentored over the years. This is Sue’s legacy and she will be greatly missed by all who had the privilege to know her.
