As well as celebrating the achievements of students past and present, we like to champion our incredibly talented staff.

Barnfield College is proud to have so many inspirational members of staff in the Barnfield team – from award-winners to industry experts.

Meet Steve Croucher, one of our Plumbing Lecturers, based at our Enterprise Way campus.

Steve was awarded a City & Guilds Gold Medal of Excellence in Teaching award, which is an incredible achievement. Nominated by External Quality Assurance, Steve was also put forward by City & Guilds for ‘Tutor of the Year’ Award, and was placed second in the UK.

How did it feel to win this award?

“I was both surprised and honored to win the Gold Medal for Excellence Award for teaching Plumbing, and astonished to be placed second in the ‘Tutor of the Year’ award, where the nominations came from the UK and internationally as well.

“I still believe now, as I did when I first started teaching, that everyone deserves a chance. Many of our ex -students are now running their own businesses or have gone on to enjoy successful careers. It is very rewarding when they send their apprentices back to us for training because they want their learners to have the same experience at Barnfield College that they had.”
