Gold Winners

Stuart Cullen

Northern Regional College Ballymoney

The Award for Outstanding Use of Technology in Education

Ballymoney, Belfast

Stuart is truly an inspiration to his students. An alumnus of Northern Regional College himself, he knows what it’s like to study in the further education sector.
Today he is an Assistant Head of Department in the College for its Creative Industries portfolio, and is still a hands on lecturer and mentor in media-related subjects – where keeping ahead of the curve in terms of using technology in teaching is essential. The success of the College’s media graduates is testament to Stuart’s inspirational teaching and his industry contacts, with many going straight on to university or employment in Northern Ireland and further afield.
