Inspire! Adult Learning Awards 2018

Call for nominations

Nominations are now invited for the 2018 Inspire! Adult Learning Awards. We are looking for individuals, community projects and workplace partnerships.

The closing date for submitting your nomination is 16 March 2018 and the awards will be presented on the 6th June ahead of Adult Learners’ Week.


We are looking for people, who have used adult learning to transform their lives or have made an impact on their families, friends and their communities. They may have moved into work, improved their health or changed careers.

We are looking for projects which have reached out to people and used learning to change and create an impact in their communities – maybe volunteer skills have been built, new partnerships have been created and provision has been developed.

We are looking for workplace projects that are delivering skills at work for those who have had fewer chances to participate and which improve opportunities for individuals to progress.
