Adult Learners’ Week Awards 2012 announced

November 8, 2011

NIACE has announced that nominations are now open for the 2012 Adult Learners’  Week Awards. Colleges can nominate outstanding learners and give them the recognition they deserve for their achievements.

Every year NIACE receives around 1,500 nominations from colleges, workplaces and other adult education providers for the Adult Learners’ Week Awards, which identify and celebrate people who have used learning to help them transform their lives, often beyond what they ever thought was possible. Awards are also given to innovative projects that provide adults with the opportunity to learn and improve their lives and the lives of their families and communities.

College marketers know well that inspiring learners can attract good PR for the college as a spin-off of their hard work and commitment – why not add to the good news by nominating some of your learners for an ALW Award? David Hughes, NIACE Chief Executive, said: “The Adult Learners’ Week Awards celebrate the remarkable achievements of adults, giving them the recognition they deserve. And, in turn, the winners become inspirational role models, encouraging many more people to take up learning. So, if you know an outstanding adult learner, nominate them for an Adult Learners’ Week Award.”

Adult Learners’ Week runs from 12-18 May next year, and nominations for the Awards close on 27 January. Find out more at
