In April 2019, we presented HRH The Princess Royal with the prestigious Centenary Fellowship award when we welcomed Her Royal Highness to present the City Lit Centenary Awards.
We hosted the awards to celebrate 100 years of delivering outstanding education. The Princess Royal met with students and their families at the awards ceremony. The awards also celebrated the dedicated tutors who share their expertise, knowledge and passion across our wide range of courses.
HRH The Princess Royal received The City Lit Centenary Fellowship in recognition of her commitment to adult education. The Princess Royal, who has been a strong advocate and supporter of lifelong learning for many years, said: “I have had the pleasure of visiting City Lit a number of times to meet its inspirational learners and tutors, as well as welcoming City Lit students to Buckingham Palace as National Learning Ambassadors.
“It is particularly encouraging to see how people of all ages and backgrounds come together at City Lit to challenge themselves and transform their lives.
“If education can be defined as ‘training for life’, then lifelong learning and its ability to unlock potential throughout people’s lives should be accepted as part of life. I am honoured to receive the City Lit Centenary Fellowship.”
