2019 Award Nominations Open Now

Our awards celebrate the many benefits learning can have for everyone, and recognise individuals, tutors, employers and projects who have used learning to change their lives and the lives of others.

Guidance and information for nominators and nominees

To help you understand the nominations process, we have produced guidance notes for nominators, information for nominees (including an Easy Read version for individual learner nominees) and advice on how to write a good nomination.

The nominator guidance notes include eligibility criteria, timescales and a copy of the nomination questions. This means you can draft your answers and prepare your nomination before accessing the form online.

We strongly recommend you download and read these important documents (below) before starting the online nomination form.

All nominations must be submitted by 12pm on Tuesday 12 February 2019.
