English Language Learning Award Winner
“I never imagined that I would have a second chance to better my education. Step by step I have been given the opportunity to challenge myself and see how far I can go.
I want to prove to those who underestimated and ridiculed me that I am capable, strong and determined and that I can accomplish whatever I set myself to do. These are the happiest days of my educational life. Learning has given me the chance to grow as an individual and to have aspirations for a much brighter future.”
Learning for Health Award Winner
“Learning has transformed every part of my life. Starting to learn something that I love gave me a reason to get up in the morning and a reason to live. I now no longer need to take anti-depressants and have learnt many coping strategies in their place.
My future is bright and through learning I know everything is achievable. Adult Education has given me so much strength and determination. I can actually say ... “Education has saved my life”.
