Don’t miss out, the deadline for nominations is 5pm on Thursday 30 January 2014
- Awards for Individuals
The individual award recognises the outstanding achievements of adults of all ages who have undertaken learning of all kinds. This could be learning for personal or professional development, learning with or for family and community, or simply learning for fun. We’re seeking individuals who have made a significant difference to their lives through learning, and would motivate others to do the same.
- Awards for Apprentices
The Apprentice award recognises the valuable contribution that Apprentices make to the economy, celebrating the training and skills they have developed, and the impact they have had on business. We are seeking Apprentices who have been on a transformational learning journey as a result of the training undertaken and the support received from their employer.
- Awards for Learning Projects
The project award recognises projects that have made a positive difference to learners’ development. We are seeking nominations from projects that have helped learners to completely transform their lives-and for many-the lives of those around them. Award winning projects need to demonstrate that the learners have made significant progress by providing a statement from a learner and it is the outcome of the provision which is key to the eligibility for the award.
- Awards for Employers
The employer award recognises investment in outstanding staff training and development. We are seeking nominations from organisations that have used workplace learning to develop and utilise the skills of their workforce to improve productivity, raise morale and enhance their business. Successful nominations will clearly demonstrate the impact of this learning on employees.
These awards are for individuals, projects, employers and Apprentices based in England only. For Adult Learners' Week in Wales please visit the NIACE Dysgu Cymru website
