Cork Celebrates Lifelong Learning Awards 2021

Nominations are now open ! 

Cork Learning City will be celebrating Lifelong Learning in a new way for 2021 and we would like everyone to be involved.  As Cork’s internationally acclaimed, inspirational and inclusive festival, Cork Lifelong Learning Festival cannot unfortunately take place this year due to ongoing government restrictions instead, we launched this new 'Cork Celebrates Lifelong Learning' initiative in March and the Deadline for entries is 5pm on Friday 18th June 2021.

During the launch week we held a series of lunchtime webinars which introduced our new Learning Cities Awards to celebrate learning across early years, primary and secondary school, further education, higher education and adult education (community and workplace learning) as well as highlighting exceptional and inspirational learning. This is a great opportunity for the people of Cork to nominate individuals and projects that have inspired us by their innovation endeavor and resilience through their Lifelong Learning actions over the past year. 

These awards are a celebration of how lifelong learning enables people to change their lives and how learning has become a way to improvement in life, work and community.

Thanks to everyone who joined us to find out how to nominate exceptional individuals or projects in your area and to see some examples of best practice from other Learning Cities.
