Celebrating the Suffolk Adult Learner Awards: Honoring Extraordinary Achievements

Updated: Jun 20, 2023

Mark your calendars for Thursday, June 29th, as the Suffolk Adult Learner Awards take center stage. Ipswich Community Media is proud to sponsor the esteemed category of Volunteer of the Year, an opportunity to recognize the exceptional contributions made by selfless individuals in our community.

This year’s awards ceremony will be held on Thursday 29th June at Endeavour House, 8 Russell Road, Ipswich IP1 2BX (6:30 pm – 9:00 pm).

The Suffolk Adult Learners' Awards is an opportunity to recognize individuals who have transformed their lives and the lives of their families, friends, communities, and workplaces through learning. Nominees may have acquired new skills for personal or professional development, achieved something they never thought was possible or positively transformed their lives and the lives of those around them.

This year, we have submitted numerous nominations, each highlighting the remarkable efforts of our dedicated learners and our teaching team. Among these outstanding individuals is Linda Vines, our Lead ESOL Tutor and Co-Founder.

With an impressive tenure of approximately 25 years in the field, Linda has been an integral part of our organisation since its inception in 2015. Her passion for teaching and commitment to empowering others is truly commendable.

When she's not transforming lives through education, Linda enjoys indulging in her hobbies. Long walks, music, and, above all, her love for reading—her collection of books could rival that of a bookshop!

At Ipswich Community Media, we are privileged to work alongside a team of extraordinary individuals who share a deep dedication to our mission. Linda, along with the other talented and passionate team members, contributes to creating an environment that nurtures growth and inspires our learners to reach their full potential.

Thanks Linda for everything you do to support our learners to thrive. Your commitment and passion for teaching have touched the lives of countless learners.

As the ceremony approaches, we eagerly anticipate the opportunity to celebrate the exceptional achievements of our learners and the invaluable contributions of volunteers throughout our community. Their dedication and resilience are an inspiration to us all.

Join us in applauding the incredible work of Linda Vines and our remarkable learners. Let us celebrate their achievements, and continue to foster a supportive and empowering environment for lifelong learning.

Stay tuned for updates...
