Everything you need to know about Learner of the Year 2024

“I was incredibly proud to see Harry collect the Learner of the Year award.

“He’s worked incredibly hard over the last two years and made incredible progress since he started. He’s a confident young man now and I’m sure he can do anything he wants to do.”

Steve Cristofoli – tutor for our 2022 Learner of the Year, Harry Jones

Has one of your learners made incredible progress through their leadership skills programme? Have they come out of their shell and become so much more than they thought they could be? Maybe they inspire others and are already a leader?

They could be great candidates for the 2024 edition of our Learner of the Year Award.

Nominations for Learner of the Year are now open, so now’s the time to think about who could represent your centre and potentially take this year’s award.

Why should I nominate a learner?

Taking part in Learner of the Year is a great way to reflect on your learners’ journey and celebrate everything they have achieved in completing their programme.

That journey can be totally different for individual learners – some overcome huge personal obstacles, like 2022’s winner Harry Jones , while others give huge amounts of their personal time to inspire others, such as last year’s winner Eleanor Hughes.

We know our learners come in all shapes and sizes so there’s no one-size-fits-all.

How can we get involved?

Completing a nomination is easy and you can find out all the info here. All we ask is for any learners you would like to nominate to complete a short form and for their tutor to complete a separate one in support.

We’ll then need each learner to complete a short video (about 90 seconds) explaining why they should win Learner of the Year and telling us about their journey – we’ll send their tutor the link to upload this video.

The deadline for sending us your learners’ video is Friday 26 April 2024.

One of your learners could win this year’s award with your support. It’s a great way for them to end their qualification or award, and we’ve seen how much it means to them when they get that recognition (it’s why we do our job!)
