UALL 2018 Awards - Winners announced!

UALL 2018 Awards - Winners announced!

The UALL Awards Scheme recognises and celebrates projects, programmes, partnerships, and research that promote lifelong learning in the Higher Education Sector. The Scheme is open to all departments and offices in any institution that holds UALL membership.

The Awards have grown since its very first year and it was decided last year that having only one category limited the selection panel. So, for the first time, the Awards included four categories: Innovation, Sustainability, Research and International. Through these strands, members could submit under these categories and it meant that UALL could recognise and celebrate more of the fantastic submissions that we get year after year. 

The Awards ceremony took place at the UALL 2018 Annual Conference dinner which was held in the Great Hall of Downing College, Cambridge. This event was compered by our own Pauline McManus, with our Chair, The Reverend Canon Professor Peter Neil presenting the awards.
