Learning Matters!

Voluntary Sector North West (VSNW) is proud to lead the Learning Matters 2017, cross-sector award scheme and regional learning campaign. Developed in partnership with Health Education England working across the North West, this joint campaign recognises the contribution that adult learning makes to individual, community and economic wellbeing as well as the continued development of the health and care sector. Through partnership working Learning Matters will emphasise the importance of developing and harnessing all talent. It will highlight the role and value of innovation. It will underpin a commitment to engage with and learn from patients, carers and the public. It will highlight what can be done to enable the health and care system to support people to have the knowledge, skills and confidence to play an active role in managing their own health and showcase how to work effectively with communities and their assets. Above all else it will demonstrate a commitment to driving learning to promote social mobility and reduce health inequality.


Why nominate? Three simple reasons:

1) Everyone is a winner

We believe everyone that is nominated should be recognised and celebrated. All nominees will receive a certificate of recognition.


2) Recognising achievement is an investment in the future

People (and organisations) who engage in learning and development make a huge personal investment and demonstrate a commitment to the services that they deliver. Celebrating this learning is about recognising this investment and inspiring others to give learning a go. The stories that the winners and nominees tell will provide new and compelling ways to describe a vision for health and care where more people live well and enjoy better lives because we all work better together.


3) Because we care about people who care!

People who engage in learning and development have higher levels of wellbeing and are more skilled and motivated to do their jobs. Staff wellbeing is an essential component of high quality, safe and person centred care.
