Learning Endeavour Awards 2021 Shortlist Announcement
OPEN COLLEGE NETWORK NI (OCN NI) has revealed the shortlist for its third upcoming Learning Endeavour Awards 2021, which will take place online on June 2nd.
The awards shortlist includes nominees from all over Northern Ireland and covers categories such as Third Sector Learner of the Year, FE Learner of the Year, Schools Learner of the Year and Inspiring Tutor/Teacher of the Year. This year, a new category, Advancing Learning Through Innovation, was added to recognise how organisations have transformed the delivery of qualifications throughout the Covid-19 pandemic.
Entries to the 2021 awards have been record-breaking, so to make it onto the shortlist is quite an achievement, explained Martin Flynn, CEO of OCN NI: “This year is officially our biggest ever awards with almost 200 entries.
“We are genuinely thrilled at the fantastic response and the calibre of entries is extremely high so well done to everyone who has made it onto the shortlist”, said Martin.
Due to Covid-19 restrictions, the Awards will be screened live online, but that has not stopped OCN NI from ensuring everyone watching at home, in their offices or at school, is entertained.
Martin continued: “Covid-19 restrictions mean we can’t do an in-person event to celebrate our nominees’ achievements. The past year has been really challenging for learners and their teachers. So, we designed this year’s awards to not only recognise everyone’s accomplishments but added a little fun to the proceedings. We asked radio presenters, Jordan Humphries and Steve Turnbull to host the ceremony and there are some hilarious surprises for everyone watching live online.
“We’ll also be announcing the recipient of the prestigious, Hilary Sloan Learning Endeavour Award from one of our shortlisted winners, who will receive a £1,000 learning bursary. So, best of luck to everyone who has made the shortlist and I look forward to revealing who the winners are on June 2nd.”, concluded Martin.
