Learner Awards 2023
Each year at WAES, we hold the Learner Awards to celebrate success across our service. All learners nominated were invited to collect their certificate in a celebratory ceremony in the Lord Mayor's Parlour at Westminster City Hall on Wednesday 5 July.
Due to the capacity of the venue, the awards were split into three ceremonies:
Community & Cultural Learning and ESOL departments
Creative Industries department
Professional Pathways, Basic Skills and Digital and Computing departments
In addition to the certificates received by all nominees, a panel of WAES staff members was convened to select a number of stand-out nominations, in recognition of learners’ great contribution to their studies and their progress and achievement. Unsurprisingly, this was a very difficult task, due to the high quality of all nominations. The chosen learners either received a Highly Commended certificate or a WAES to Success award, with one learner further chosen as Learner of the Year.
Each of these additional winners received an Amazon voucher.
Thank you to all guests and everyone involved in managing this event.
