A number of NTF colleagues were at the ISSOTL conference in Quebec last week. This is just a prompt to visit the ISSOTL website, since judging from the Twitter stream, it looked to be an exciting conference.

On Wednesday 8 October 2014 55 new NTFs received their Higher Education Academy award at the grand ceremony in Liverpool. Liverpool’s Anglican Cathedral provided the dramatic venue for the event: a stunning space where a fine gathering of NTFs, HEA colleagues and guests met to celebrate individual achievements and a great awards scheme.

Dinner jackets and evening dresses added glamour to the magnificent setting and conversations filled the air with cheer. The awards ceremony will no doubt trigger memories for many NTFs as this annual event has made possible many a firm friendship.
The heartiest of congratulations goes to all of the 2014 NTFs. It will be a pleasure to work collaboratively with you.
