As part of the Adult Learners’ Festival the STAR Awards will take on extra significance in 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic as we celebrate and acknowledge the incredible work that adult learning providers have done in adapting their provision to ensure that the learners’ needs continue to be met. This year there are even more STAR Award categories as we search for new, diverse and experienced programmes that provide opportunities for adults to learn.
Nominations are invited from any individual, group or organisation involved in adult learning. There are five main STAR Award categories:
1. Sustainable Development through Education
2. Learner Voice
3. Social Inclusion
4. Health and Wellbeing
5. Third-level Access and Engagement
Two Special Awards will also be given for Mitigating Educational Disadvantage through Innovation (during COVID-19), and a European Social Fund Special Recognition Award.
You can nominate today by clicking here.
