The Festival of Learning Awards recognise the outstanding achievements of adult learners and those who teach them and aim to inspire others to discover how learning can benefit them, their families and communities. Nominations are sought of individuals, tutors, employers and projects that have shown a special commitment to lifelong learning and have remarkable stories that will inspire change in other people’s lives. The awards are organised by the Learning and Work Institute. They are presented across four categories:
David Russell, ETF Chief Executive, said:
“We are pleased to continue our support for the Festival of Learning and look forward to presenting the award for Tutor of the Year again in 2019. The award showcases the work of dedicated professionals from across the Further Education and Training sector who are transforming the lives of adult learners and setting a standard for others to aspire to. We are confident there will be no shortage of first-class entrants and look forward to recognising and promoting their achievements.”
It is well-recognised that learning not only increases skills and employment prospects, but also bring benefits such as improved health and wellbeing, increased civic engagement and greater confidence to pursue goals and achieve full potential across all areas of life.
Nominations are open until Tuesday 12 February 2019. For more information about the Festival of Learning and how to nominate visit www.festivaloflearning.org.uk.
