Adult learners need rewarding

NORTHUMBERLAND residents are being urged to nominate people for the Adult Learners’ Week Awards.

They can put forward someone they teach, a colleague, a relative or a friend for their outstanding achievements.

The National Institute of Adult Continuing Education, which organises the awards each year, is looking for people who have used learning to transform their lives and innovative projects that provide adults with the opportunity to improve themselves as well as their families and communities.

Nominations must be made by 5pm on Friday, January 27. For more information, call 0116 2044200 or visit
