Annual Learning Awards

The Council’s annual Learning Awards took place on Friday (19 November) and paid tribute to employees who have achieved a professional, academic or vocational qualification linked to their role.

The ceremony was held via Microsoft Teams and recognised employees who have gained an accredited qualification supported by the Council or the HSCP.

This year’s event was held in partnership with the HSCP.

A wide range of achievements was celebrated, including degrees, SVQs, Argyll and Bute Manager and many more. The awards included all qualifications achieved in both 19/20 and 20/21, so that those who continued their study during Covid got the recognition they deserve.

Well done everyone!
