Our awards showcase and celebrate the wonderful things that learning can achieve - for individuals, families, communities, employers and the economy.

The Employer awards, sponsored by NOCN, celebrate employers that have used learning to develop and utilise the skills of their workforce to improve productivity, raise morale, increase staff retention and enhance their business performance.

Inspirational Tutor of the Year

These awards recognise inspirational tutors who have supported learners, in a range of contexts, to go on to lead successful and rewarding lives.

Project of the Year Award

European Social Fund Award

The ESF individual and project awards celebrate stories of learners and projects with truly inspirational and life-transforming learning journeys. As a result of learning, people have achieved remarkable outcomes; their stories have the power to inspire others to learn.
