Learning takes the spotlight

Great publicity, a sense of achievement and the chance to get one up on your competitors – there are many reasons why you should have an entry in the Derbyshire Learning Awards.There are four categories recognizing the achievements of employers and learners alike, and short listed entrants will be invited to a high profile awards ceremony with Fame Academy’s David Grant at The Chesterfield Hotel in November.The categories are:

  • Apprentice of the Year, a partnership between the Learning and Skills Council and The Derbyshire Network, marks the achievements of those working towards apprenticeships or advanced apprenticeships.
  • Investing in People Award, sponsored by Derbyshire Chamber and Business Link, recognizes innovative leadership and management qualities of managing directors, owner managers or employees
  • The Greatest Learning Journey, sponsored by Connexions Derbyshire, celebrates the achievement of 16 to 19 year olds whose learning experience has significantly altered their life and future plans
  • Most Innovative Approach to Encourage Learning, sponsored by the Learning and Skills Council and Derbyshire Chamber, is open to secondary schools in Derby and Derbyshire local education authorities and recognizes creative ways to raise achievement

Simply making an entry can be useful in identifying strengths, weaknesses and challenges in your particular approach to training – and success in these awards will be highly motivational, setting an example for others to follow.Entries close on September 30th. Entry forms are available from Derbyshire Chamber - telephone 0844 443 2150 – or online at www.derbyshirechamber.com/awards/
