Thank you to our friends and colleagues at the WEA who nominated the Beth Johnson Foundation for the West Midlands Partnership Award 2013 which we received following the WEA’s national conference.Following the conference the WEA released the following statement: "Outstanding partnerships are at the core of the WEA’s approach to delivering adult education. At local, regional and national level they enable us to reach into the heart of communities, to raise educational aspirations and encourage active involvement. These awards celebrate and recognise these partnerships. The nominees are wonderful exemplars of the diversity of the many hundreds of organisations that we work with on a daily basis to deliver our mission."The Foundation is grateful for the award and we look forward to our future partnership working.
