Archive of the Year award

Congratulations to our oral history tutor Craig Fees and his team at the Planned Environment Therapy Trust Archive and Study Centre on winning the Your Family History's Archive of the Year Award. The Trust supports therapeutic approaches to the treatment of children and adults who have suffered emotionally and psychologically. We're very pleased that its work and the central role of PETT's archives and oral history projects have been recognised in this way. More information is on the PETT website.

Craig Fees is a tutor on our distance learning module Sound and Vision: Collecting, Preserving and Managing Film, Sound and Oral History and is the archivist and oral history expert at the Trust. The prize was presented to him at Who Do You Think You Are Live by another of our tutors, Dr Nick Barratt, who is the author and tutor of CAIS's House History module. The Centre for Archive and Information Studies (CAIS) had a stall at the WDYTYA Live show; it was lovely to meet up with former and current students and there was a lot of interest in our Family and Local History courses. Pat Whatley spoke at the show on the Scottish Poor Law and Caroline Brown on Scottish asylum records and we are planning a new module on welfare and health to be offered as a single module or part of our Certificate and Masters programme.
