Twin nominations in lifelong learning awards

The Vaughan Centre for Lifelong Learning

A national body representing institutions involved in lifelong learning has shortlisted two projects at our University for awards.

The Vaughan Centre for Lifelong Learning is nominated for Universities Association for Lifelong Learning (UALL) national awards in two categories. The awards recognise and celebrate projects, programmes and practices that promote lifelong learning in the Higher Education Sector.

The Centre’s BA (Hons) Humanities and Arts programme has been nominated for its sustained contribution to the region over the last 25 years, and its innovation in curriculum development and teaching in the Humanities and Arts.

The UALL has also recognised the sustained local teaching partnership  between the Vaughan Centre for Lifelong Learning and the Highfields Community Centre in Leicester over the last 20 years, and the successful engagement and redevelopment of their part-time CertHE in Advice Work (now the CertHE in Social Welfare, Advice and Guidance), which is being delivered to learners in a community  of high social deprivation and unemployment, and where participation in HE is lower than many parts of the city.

Dr Nalita James, Acting Head of Department for the VCLL said: “This is a great achievement for the Department, and highlights the external recognition of our role in supporting adult education and lifelong learning at a time when nationally, this type of provision is under threat.”

The winner will be announced at the UALL 2016 Annual Conference at the University of Oxford, 16 -18 March 2016.
