Inspire! Awards

Learning and Work Institute is proud to be hosting the Inspire! Awards in their 26th year. Learning and Work Institute was launched in January 2016 following a merger of NIACE and the Centre for Economic and Social Inclusion.

The Inspire! Awards celebrate the achievements of exceptional individuals, projects and employers who have shown outstanding passion, commitment and drive to improve themselves, their community or workplace through learning.

The Award Ceremony will take place in Cardiff, just before Adult Learners’ Week 19-25 June 2017. It is a partnership involving Learning and Work Institute, Welsh Government and a whole range of organisations.

We are looking for nominations of people, projects and employers whose learning achievements will inspire others to return to or take up learning, people who have improved their lives or the lives of others, and gained a positive or life changing experience from adult learning.
