North West Adult Learners' Week awards 2015

On the evening of 11 June, with the amazing backdrop provided by the spectacular Living Worlds Gallery at Manchester Museum, the first ever joint North West Adult Learners’ Week Awards in Health and Social Care took place to a full house.


People from across the region will be gathering together to hear the inspirational stories of adults who have been transformed by their learning experiences and the impact this learning has had on others. Health Education England's North West team, in partnership with North West Employers and Voluntary Sector North West have chosen to celebrate and promote the national learning campaign Adult Learners’ Week with a series of joint health and social care awards. This partnership is based on a commitment to promoting lifelong learning because of the shared belief that learning is good for people and organisations and in this context ,it is crucial for People Who Care About Care. For the first time ever we are also delighted to welcome two award programme sponsors, The Open University and the Workers Education Association, who together created two additional Adult Learners’ Week Awards to highlight the value of widening participation and the importance of recognising and tackling  the wider determinants of health.

We believe that people who engage in learning and development make a huge personal investment and commitment to patients and service users as well as themselves. And this learning directly contributes to a place where health and social care is delivered with compassion, consideration, competence, commitment and courage. Recognising learning is an investment in all our futures.
