A DONCASTER College staff member has scooped an award for his professionalism at work.

Chris Noble, a programme co-ordinator responsible for work-based learning in the college’s engineering department, was nominated by his fellow colleagues for the Professional Recognition Award.

The award was first launched back in 2011, is given three times a year, and recognises the contribution they make during their working life.

The humble 42-year-old from Epworth was delighted but also shocked to receive the award.

He said: “I was surprised but very honoured to receive the award especially as you are nominated by work colleagues.

“To be honest I turn up in the morning, I do my job, and go home at night, to me, it feels nothing out of the ordinary but it’s reassuring to know that people think I do it well.”

Chris was nominated for being a ‘well-respected member of staff’ and always willing to go the extra mile.

In the nomination, his colleagues added: “He has the ability to retain a sense of humour despite chaos around.  Despite working to tight deadlines he always puts his learners first and his professionalism and helpfulness with employers is widely recognised. He always demonstrates teamwork and collaboration.”

As well as the award, Chris has received a Nuffield Health and Fitness pass for two weeks, a meal for two at the college’s Waterfront Restaurant, a spa package and a professional profiling session with Xenonex.
