Festival of Learning Awards close on 31 March 2017

Festival of Learning (previously Adult Learners' Week) highlights the positive and transformative impact learning has on people, employers, communities and the economy. The awards celebrate the remarkable stories of people that have used learning to change lives, recognise these outstanding achievements and inspire others to discover the power of learning for themselves.

You can nominate within any of the following four categories. Awards within these categories include Young Adult Learner, Learning for Work, Social Impact, Outstanding Individual, Patron's and President's awards.

Nominate a young adult carer for an award today

The Festival of Learning Awards is a great opportunity to recognise the achievements of young adult carers and raise awareness of this group of inspirational young people at a national level.

Nominate a care leaver for an award today

We know that many care leavers are dedicated to improving their lives through learning and achieve great things in education and work, despite the challenges they face. Why not help the care leavers you work with get the recognition they deserve by nominating them for a Festival of Learning Award?

Remember, nominations for the Festival of Learning Awards are open until Friday 31 March 2017.

If any of the young people you work with have made a difference to their lives, or other people’s lives, through learning, nominate them today.
