A family learning service has been recognised for its work by Festival of Learning 2020.

The Jubilee Partnership, run by SAFL, Sandwell Council’s Sandwell Adult and Family Learning service and the Jubilee Park Community Centre, Tipton has been recognised for their work in promoting learning in the community.

Festival of Learning, originally Adult Learners Week, is an organisation dedicated to the promotion of adult learning and rewarding organisations who promote, support and provide adult learning opportunities.

Over the last few years, Jubilee Partnership has delivered ICT and iPad classes and family learning events, free of charge to Sandwell residents.

These classes have led to more people enrolling on SAFL courses and more people using the Jubilee Centre; which is managed by the Bangladeshi Women's Association.

Sandwell Council Deputy Leader Councillor Danny Millard said: “Jubilee Partnership has done so much for the local community and this award is a great acknowledgement of all hard work that the teams have put in. Learning is vital for everyone, the more we can learn and develop new skills, the more we can help ourselves, our families and our community.”
