Friday, 17 January, 2014

On the evening of 5 June, in glorious surrounds, Manchester Museum hosted the North West’s regional award ceremony to mark Adult Learners’ Week.Hundreds of people came together to hear the inspirational stories of adults who have been transformed by their learning experiences and the impact this learning has had on others.Health Education North West is celebrating and promoting the national learning campaign Adult Learners Week in 2014 through a series of health and social care awards because we know learning is good for people and organisations and We Care About People Who Care. Health Education North West believe that people who engage in learning and development make a huge personal investment and commitment to patients and service users as well as themselves. Celebrating this learning is not only a way to recognise that investment but it also helps to describe a vision for health and social care in new and compelling ways for the future-health and social care with care and compassion where patients come first. Recognising achievement is an investment in all our futures.North West Apprentice of the Year in Health and Social CareCarly Winder, Hospice at Home Carlisle and North Lakeland (joint winner) Stacey Barnes, Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust (joint winner)Career Progression in Health and Social Care Lynda Thompson, Stockport NHS Foundation Trust (joint winner) Samuel Smith, Bolton NHS Foundation Trust (joint winner)First Steps into Employment in Health and Social Care Phylis Ziswa, Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust (joint winner) John Callery, The Royal Liverpool and Broadgreen University Hospitals Trust (joint winner)Supporting Learners in Practice in Health and Social Care Cait McDermott, Autism InitiativesVolunteer of the Year in Health and Social Care Billy Riley, Dudley Wallis Centre Merseyside (joint winner) Catherine Skelton, Manchester Mental Health and Social Care Trust (joint winner)Learning Together in Health and Social Care Project AwardsIntegrated Working Project AwardDancing Recall Making-Connections, Cumbria Daphne Cushnie MCSPDeveloping a Shared Culture Project Award University of Salford and Partners: North West Practice Development Network NWPDN, Bolton NHS Foundation Trust, Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust and Pennine Acute Hospitals NHS Trust     For more information on this national Adult Learning campaign and Adult Learners’ Week see: Inspired by Adult Learners Week.
