James Vernon has become the first recipient of the Professional Recognition Award by Doncaster College to its staff.

The Awards were launched in late 2011, to recognise the professional contribution that staff make towards the work of the college. The award will be given three times a year so a member of staff will be honoured once a term.

Mr Vernon (23), a field support engineer from Central IT Services, has won the award for the autumn term.

Nominees said Mr Vernon was “patient, empathetic and always pleasant and professional when helping people, regardless of how busy he is. He always takes time to listen and will go out of his way to find a solution and provide feedback.”

Mr Vernon, from Westwoodside, near Doncaster, has worked at the college for 11 months, said: “It was an honour to be the first to receive the Award and I’d say to anyone who wants to win it just do what you enjoy otherwise you won’t put the effort in.”
