Adult Learner Awards

We held our first ever annual awards ceremony on Friday 24 September, celebrating the efforts of our learners over the last year.

The awards were split into six categories, with the winner from each category put forward for the overall Learner of the Year Award.

This award was given to Abbie King who took home the top prize alongside her win for Vocational Learner of the Year.

Abbie started with Adult Learning doing Level 1 functional skills, progressing through to GCSEs and an Access to Higher Education qualification. This has enabled her to take up a place at university.

Abbie King said:

“Finding out that I had won overall learner of the year, I was gobsmacked and honoured. Thank you to those that nominated for me and congratulations to all the nominees and winners for their hard work. I never imagined that when I started my journey studying functional skills maths that I would go on to win awards."

“I am forever grateful to Adult Learning for encouraging and supporting me. This allowed me to gain the confidence needed to pursue my dream career. Along with those that have taught and mentored me over the last few years.

Denise Saadvandi, head of Adult Learning said:

“I am proud of the exceptional commitment and dedication of our staff, as they have supported learners to continue learning and achieving through such challenging times. I hope that the awards will showcase what can be accomplished to inspire future learners.”

The awards were presented online through a virtual ceremony. Watch the virtual ceremony on YouTube.

The individual awards come on the back of Adult Learning winning the ‘Adult and Community Learning Provider of the Year’ at the Times Educational Supplement (TES) Further Education awards earlier this year.

The categories were:

  • Apprenticeship Leaner of the Year
  • Community Learning Learner of the Year
  • Family Learning Learner of the Year
  • Vocational Learner of the Year
  • Personal Development and Leisure Learner of the Year
  • Foundation Skills Learner of the Year
