The Vaughan Centre for Lifelong Learning’s BA in Humanities and Arts has been recognised in the Universities Association for Lifelong Learning (UALL) national awards.

The BA in Humanities and Arts is offered part-time by the Vaughan Centre for Lifelong Learning and has been recognised for its contribution to the promotion of lifelong learning in the higher education sector, its sustained contribution to lifelong learning in the region over the last 25 years, and its innovation in curriculum development and teaching in the Humanities and Arts.

Dr Lucy Faire, Course Director, and Dr Clive Marsh, Head of Department, collaborated on the writing of the award submission. Lucy said: 'I am delighted that the part-time BA in Humanities and Arts has been recognised for the valuable contribution it has made to many adult learners over the last 25 years. The enthusiasm of the students mirrors the dedication of a brilliant team of tutors and support staff.'

UALL brings together and influences policy in part-time and lifelong learning engagement in higher education. UALL’s annual conference was held from 16-18 March 2016 at the University of Oxford and with the awards ceremony taking place during the conference dinner.

Dr Nalita James, Acting Head of Department, said: ‘Being a runner up for the UALL national awards is a great achievement for the Department, and in particular Dr Lucy Faire and her commitment to making the BA in Humanities and Arts a success. The award highlights the external recognition of the Vaughan Centre’s role in supporting adult education and lifelong learning.’
