Royal approval: Solihull's Rosa celebrates prestigious award

Solihull Editorial 7th May, 2022

A DIRECTOR at Solihull College & University Centre has celebrated being awarded her Technical Teaching Fellowship at the Royal Commission for the Exhibition of 1851 Presidential Dinner with The Princess Royal.

Rosa Wells, executive director of employment and skills and Institute of Technology at the college, was awarded the fellowship last year, but celebrations were delayed due to the pandemic.

It’s recognised as a prestigious award and is only granted to applicants who have met the standards required by the Commission’s selection panel.

“I had the honour of sharing the work we are doing at Solihull College & University Centre and Greater Birmingham and Solihull Institute of Technology with The Princess Royal,” said Rosa.

“It was a pleasure to talk about how we are working collaboratively across the region to support engineering employers to recruit and develop a more diverse workforce.

“Thank you also to The Education and Training Foundation for your support in developing the Technical Teaching Fellowships with the Royal Commission for the Exhibition of 1851.”

The Princess Royal is President of The Royal Commission for the Exhibition of 1851 which awards around 35 postgraduate fellowships and scholarships a year.

A total of 13 Nobel Laureates have been recipients of these prestigious awards.
