After receiving the award, Carolyn acknowledged the dedicated and committed team that she works with at SRC. “As a working mum of two amazing young people who inspire me daily to influence every student to be a better form of themselves, I am a tireless ambassador for young people in my personal and professional life – all of which is founded on trust, respect and inclusivity.

She added, “I am delighted and honoured to have won this award for ‘Services to Education’ on such a special night for empowering women in Northern Ireland.”

Brian Doran, Chief Executive at SRC, said, “Carolyn lives and breathes our values of putting the learner first, striving for excellence and working together to achieve more.

“Throughout Carolyn’s career, she has always put the students’ needs first and has supported and encouraged many, especially those hard to reach students to give their best and to succeed.



“She has strived for excellence by taking the lead across the Further Education Sector in Northern Ireland on a number of projects and she works tirelessly to promote the College through her interactions with her colleagues at SRC and across the sector.

“She was also instrumental in developing the first higher level apprenticeship in applied industrial science, a programme that is now held up by the Department for the Economy as an exemplar of best practice.

He added, “We are delighted that Carolyn has won this award and has been recognised for her outstanding service to education.”
