The 2015 Adult Learners’ Week Awards, part of Adult Learners’ Week, will recognise the remarkable learning achievements of individuals, tutors, projects and employers.

NIACE is calling for people from Bexleyheath to nominate adult learners who have used learning to transform their lives and the lives of others.

Nominations are open until 5pm on December 17.

David Hughes, Chief Executive of NIACE, said: “We want to hear the very best stories about adults of every background, age and stage who have used learning to transform their lives and the lives of their families, as well as the communities they live in and the places they work.”

Adult Learner Amy King, of Bexleyheath, was recognised at the 2014 Adult Learners’ Week Awards and received a learning voucher, valued between £200 and £1,000 as well as a certificate of achievement.

Amy missed years of schooling due to ill-health, but is now studying a Master’s Degree in Chemistry, running her own charity and volunteering with lower-set and SEN children.

For information about how to nominate visit, email, or call Adult Learners’ Week Team on 0116 204 4200.
