CIOL’s annual awards celebrate the importance of language and cultural understanding, the value of languages to business and industry and excellence in language learning. 2020 has been a challenging year and has prevented us from holding our awards evening, which normally takes place in November. However we still want to celebrate the great successes and achievements that have continued in spite of the difficult circumstances, and we have interviewed our award winners online instead.
An award given to recognise a person who has made an outstanding contribution to the field of languages throughout their life and career.
