Skills and Learning Award

The award

Education is a lifelong pursuit that can bring new skills and understanding to the things we do in our lives. The Skills and Learning Award recognises a person with learning disabilities who has worked hard to develop their skills and take their knowledge to a new level.

Helpful information

For this category, the judges will be looking for nominations which fit the following criteria:

  • Demonstrate what new skill the person has learned and how they use this skill regularly to enjoy life in new ways
  • Describe the setting that the person is using their new skill in and provide evidence of the benefits
  • Tell us if the person has been able to share this new skill and learning with others.
