During the pandemic, the County Council's community learning team developed new ways of helping family learning.

Staffordshire County Council Community Learning has been shortlisted for a national award in recognition of how the service has innovated, adapted, and delivered family learning over the past year.

The shortlisting is for a national Building Brighter Futures through Family Learning Award, organised by the National Campaign For Learning to celebrate activities that helped families during and after lockdown and supported health and wellbeing.

The nomination acknowledges how Staffordshire Community Learning is using imaginative, innovative, and inclusive ways to deliver learning opportunities which help families in their communities.

Philip White, Deputy Leader of Staffordshire County Council’s and Cabinet member for Economy and Skills, said:

Some of our top priorities have been focused on the significant changes to how learning has been delivered beyond the pandemic, keeping families connected, boosting mental health and ensuring everyone can access opportunities to learn and develop essential skills.

The in-house team here at the council, and our local delivery partners have been nothing short of outstanding in working together to innovate and continue to offer high-quality learning for residents.”

During the pandemic the county council’s community learning team developed new ways to work, with virtual and blended learning opportunities for families to maintain engagement.

Juliette Collier, National Director (Families) at the Campaign for Learning, said:

The Family Learning Awards celebrate the inspirational work of organisations that create wonderful learning opportunities for families.

This year's awards demonstrate the ingenuity and tenacity of learning providers in delivering life-changing learning through the most challenging times. We congratulate the shortlisted organisations on their deserved success and thank everyone who took part for recognising and valuing the crucial role of families as the foundation for lifelong learning.” 

Staffordshire County Council will be competing against the V&A Dundee, Rotherham Creative Learning Centre and Sutton College for the coveted award which will be announced at the end of April 2022.
