Leicester College Adult Student Awards 2020


As part of the Festival of Learning, which is coordinated by the Learning Week Institute, the college holds its own annual celebrations to mark the achievements of our adult students.

Whilst the current climate has meant our physical ceremony cannot go ahead this year, we want to show our utmost gratitude and congratulations to all of our adult students.

Finding the time to study as an adult can be challenging. Our adult students often find themselves juggling family and work commitments alongside their studies. We know, however, that adults who continue to learn throughout their lives experience numerous positive benefits: in their employment prospects, their confidence, and their health and wellbeing.
