Aaron and Derek were nominated by the staff of the School of Applied Psychology. Below, we hear why they are so deserving of this acknowledgement.

“For the School of Applied Psychology, the move to online simply would not have been possible without the support and expertise of our technical support team: Aaron Bolger and Derek Walsh. The fact that our students have been largely spared the spectacle of frustrated staff screaming into an uncaring void, is due to their being on-hand to sort out technical queries with good humour and expertise, and handle a vast volume of questions and queries with good humour.”
