The Inspire! Tutor Awards are open for nominations!

The awards are a celebration of the impact that tutors have in supporting adult learners to achieve their potential and transform their lives. The nomination process is now open– you have until Friday 8 January 2021 to submit your nomination.

The Inspire! Tutor Awards are co-ordinated by L&W in partnership with Welsh Government and supported by NTFW, Colleges Wales, National Centre for learning Welsh, Universities Wales, Adult Learning Partnership Wales.

We welcome nominations for outstanding tutors and mentors in Wales whose commitment, knowledge and skills have given adult learners the encouragement to pursue their goals and dreams and the confidence to transform their lives.

2020 has brought huge challenges and disruption to adult learning.

The coronavirus pandemic and lockdown has highlighted the digital divide that exists for many as well as the value of learning for building social networks and supporting mental health. In many ways communities of learners have responded by using their skills to support the local response to the pandemic by supporting the NHS and others in their neighbourhoods. These challenging times have accelerated the pace at which many learning providers have moved to create new ways of learning – through more digital and blended approaches. It has highlighted the resilience, talent and commitment of the adult learning workforce across Wales.

We would like to include a special award to recognise the response that the adult learning sector has made to support individuals and communities in response to the pandemic.

We are looking for tutors and mentors from the following settings:

  • Higher Education
  • Further Education
  • Workplace Setting
