Gateshead Council’s learningSkills Awards for 2014

An annual event which celebrated that over 9,000 people had participated in learning programmes with Gateshead Council learningSkills over the last year. In a survey, over two and a half thousands of these learners stated that they rated the learning as outstanding  –  the learningsSkills Awards are an opportunity to recognise and nominate learners, tutors and all people who have supported them in their achievements.  

Family Learning, within Gateshead Council’s learningSkills, nominated St Joseph’s Catholic Infants School for the above award. This is in recognition of the dedication and commitment from all staff and members of the school, in supporting and welcoming the parents/grandparents who attended all of the various Family Learning courses throughout 2013-2014.
