Learner Achievements

Festival of Learning (previously Adult Learners’ Week) is the biggest celebration of lifelong learning in England.

Their mission is to highlight the benefits of learning, celebrate the achievements of adults who have used learning to transform their lives, and to encourage everyone to embrace lifelong learning. Learners have overcome personal barriers and made choices to re-enter learning or progress to other subjects and levels.
With support from MaTReC tutors and staff our learners have increased their skills and also grown in confidence. Their personal achievements are the real successes and everyone at MaTReC wishes them every success for the future and hope they will continue learning and reaping the benefits.
All the nominees should be proud of themselves, and although not everyone can win, we applaud all of them, with everyone receiving recognition from the city of Sheffield.
Congratulations to you all, you deserve it!!
