Gemma Westlake
  • The Award for FE Lecturer of the Year
  • Basingstoke College of Technology
  • Basingstoke, Hampshire

Gemma has worked at the College for her entire education career, receiving her 10 year long-service badge last summer. Gemma is an epitome of an outstanding FE lecturer, instinctively nurturing all her students and supporting colleagues to use new technologies, particularly during the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.  

Working in a traditionally male dominated industry means Gemma acts as a positive role model for young females she very quickly demonstrates to her learners how she can help them succeed. Her consistent and methodical approach has helped students meet her lesson objectives.
