West Berkshire Council invites public to nominate local learners for achievement awards
Local students and trainees enrolled in apprenticeships, academic, professional and vocational courses – as well as family, community and health support programmes – are to have their achievements recognised in West Berkshire Council's Learner Achievement Awards.
This scheme celebrates success in adult learning, and members of the public are invited to submit nominations.
To qualify for any of the eight award categories, the nominee must have been engaged in learning since September 2019.
In addition, they must live, volunteer or work in West Berkshire, and must have been aged above 19 when they started their course.
Winners in each category will be presented with a cash prize of £100 – or £250 for groups – at a ceremony planned for November 12.
The awards are part of a national event, Lifelong Learning Week, celebrated between November 8 and November 12.
The awards are being sponsored by Newbury College, West Berkshire Training Consortium and the Newbury Community Resource Centre.
Nominations close on October 15, and can be made on West Berkshire Council's website.
