Stafford College Tutor Wins Tutor Of The Year Award

The remarkable accomplishments of Stafford’s Mark Cruxton from Stafford College were celebrated today as he was awarded the prestigious BTEC Award for Tutor of the Year 2022.  


Mark’s remarkable achievements stood out among an international field of candidates and wowed the judges, who saw how the dedication, resourcefulness, positivity and healthy dose of mischief that he gives his pupils positively affects their development.  


During lockdown, art tutor Mark created a 3D virtual gallery space from scratch and helped over 20 courses to render work and give students the showcase their efforts deserved in spite of the testing circumstances. 


His relentless commitment is also reflected in the results his students have achieved. Over the course of several years at Stafford college, he has maintained a 100% success rate of his students being accepted onto university-level courses.  


Mark Cruxton, BTEC’s Tutor of the Year, Stafford College, said: “I am very surprised and honoured to have been selected for this award. I enjoy helping students to move forward in their journey and have had the pleasure in seeing many students fulfil their ambitions of working within the creative industries at some of biggest names in the business.” 


Freya Thomas Monk, Senior Vice President for Vocational Qualifications and Training at Pearson, said: “After two long years spent giving or receiving lessons behind a computer screen, through face masks, or socially distanced, 2022 has been a whirlwind for everyone involved in education. Considering this, it makes the inspiring achievements documented in Mark’s submission all the more impressive. The hard work and commitment he – and all our winners – demonstrated is extraordinary, and I am proud we are able to recognise them all through this year’s set of Awards.”
