Josh Denney receives the Yorkshire and Humber young adult learner award
Josh Denney was presented with Yorkshire and Humber Young Adult Learner Award at the Adult Learners' Week award ceremony on Wednesday.
Adult Learners’ Week is the largest annual celebration of adult learning in the UK. Supported by the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills, European Social Fund, The National Careers Service, BBC, NOCN and OCR.
Skills Minister Matthew Hancock said, "The achievements of this year’s NIACE Adult Learners’ Week winners are inspirational. Each winner demonstrates the life changing benefits education offers.
"To make it easy for anyone wanting to re-train, or to choose a new course of study, the National Careers Service is on hand and in its first year has advised 800,000 people on what options are open to them."
David Hughes, NIACE Chief Executive, said, “Each and every year during Adult Learners’ Week we are reminded, by all the award winners’ stories, just how much people can improve their lives through learning. It helps them become more involved in their communities and often gives them a brighter future to look forward to. I hope their dedication, enthusiasm and desire for a better life inspires others to take up learning and transform their own lives as well.”
