This is your chance to nominate an inspirational lifelong learner for the annual Inspire! Adult Learning Awards 2022

Do you know an inspirational learner? You may be driving change in the workplace and developing training opportunities for progression. Are you making an impact within your local communities and widening access to learning, skills and volunteering? Are you working on environmental projects or an innovator developing learning pathways for green skills? Has your passion for sport led you to return to learn and inspire others to become active? If you have already got someone in mind, send in your inspiring stories for the awards.

Learning and Work Institute welcome nominations for people, projects and organisations across Wales who demonstrate the impact that lifelong learning can make on their lives and the lives of others. Nominations will demonstrate outstanding passion, a commitment and drive to change their stories and inspire others to take the next step.

  • Ageing Well
  • Starting Out – Welsh Beginner

Lifelong learning changes lives, share your stories with Learning and Work Institute for this year’s awards.

If you need some inspiration with your nomination – read or watch the award winner stories from last year’s awards – each story demonstrates the visible benefits of lifelong learning.

The awards will be celebrated as part of Adult Learners’ Week in partnership with Welsh Government and other partners.
