rail great reward; Nominate a young learner to win one month's travel in Europe.
As part of International Adult Learners' Week in September, 2000, Young Scot and Community Learning Scotland are now looking for nominations for young people aged 18-26, who are currently or have recently taken part in education or training.
Any kind of positive learning experience can qualify you for the top award.
If you are nominated, or want to nominate someone for an award, you need to have been aged 18-26 on December 31, 1999, and have been a student or self-directed learner at some point since December 31, 1998.
The idea is that whatever learning, training or courses were taken will have improved your life, and/or the lives of others (family, friends, or learners in their community).
A panel will choose the finalists and the organisers hope to get the winners profiled on the Grampian and Scottish Television news programmes (North Tonight and Scotland Today) during International Adult Learners' Week in September.
They will also be presented with certificates and learning vouchers to honour their achievements at the Scottish ceremony.
So, what is it all about and what has it got to do with me?
Adult Learners' Week (ALW) is an annual festival of Learning which aims to celebrate the role that learning can play in transforming lives, encourage people to take part in learning, and put people in touch with information, advice and guidance on training and education.
There's never been a better time to try something new or to become involved in learning.
Young people are no longer seen as recipients of learning, but as teachers, mentors and contributors, not only in peer group situations but also as tutors in other types of learning situation.
There will be lots of things happening during Adult Learners' Week. Look out for information in your local area and you could try to get involved in family days, skill sharing days, or even an event at the Scottish Parliament.
For your chance to win the Interrail tickets, both the nominator and the person being nominated for the Young Learner Award need to fill in a form.
Get more information - and a form - from Fiona Boucher, Community Learning Scotland, Rosebery House, 9 Haymarket Terrace, Edinburgh EH12 5EZ. Tel: 0131-313 2488. Fax: 0131-313 6800. E-mail: Fiona_Boucher@cls.dircon.co.uk
Closing date: August 31, 2000.
