Times Higher Education Awards 2011

This year King’s College London was shortlisted for two categories in the prestigious Times Higher Education (THE) Awards, held at a gala ceremony at Grosvenor House Hotel on Thursday 24th November.

KCL and the Global Child Dental Fund were shortlisted for Outstanding Contribution to Leadership Development. Our Senior Dental Leaders (SDL) programme which has been jointly run with the Harvard School of Dental Medicine for the past five years was voted best International Collaboration programme at King’s College earlier this term.

The SDL programme sadly missed out on the THE award, losing out to Durham University for their Strategy Academy. But it was, in 2011, the only dental project shortlisted for any of the THE categories and so we are delighted that dentistry was recognised and we continue to strive to achieve our aim of working with 400 Senior Dental Leaders by 2015.

As always we are hoping that the next year’s SDL programme brings with it lasting results in leadership that change the oral health in children’s lives with just a tiny drop of recognition!
