Learning and Work Cymru welcome nominations for the Inspire! Adult Learning Awards and the Inspire! Tutor Awards. The annual awards are organised by Learning and Work Institute in partnership with Welsh Government and other partners.

It has highlighted the resilience, talent, and commitment of the adult learning workforce across Wales.

A special award will also be made to recognise the response that the adult learning sector has made to support individuals and communities in response to the pandemic.
