Buckinghamshire Adult Learning Awards
Winners and nominations were celebrated at the Buckinghamshire Adult Learning Awards 2019 held at the Waterside Theatre as part of the national Festival of Learning in June. The annual event, which was attended by over 130 people, recognises learners, trainees, assessors, tutors, learning support assistants, volunteers and staff.
This year’s ceremony marked the first time that the celebrations were extended to include learners from Buckinghamshire Adult Learning’s new Traineeship scheme. The scheme offers high quality work experience placements and employability workshops to young people aged 16 to 24.
Also included in the awards were nominations from the Supported Internship programme which provides work opportunities for young adults with learning difficulties and/or disabilities.
The awards event was attended by the County Council’s Cabinet Member for Education and Skills Anita Cranmer who presented the certificates and awards to nominees and winners; and Sarah Callaghan, Service Director for Education.
