VQ Day is about recognising and celebrating success.  VQ Day 2011 - or Vocational Qualifications Day – is hosted by Welsh ultra-marathon runner and TV personality Lowri Morgan at the National Museum of Wales, Cardiff on 22 June 2011. Be there to watch skills masterclasses, take part in 'have-a-go' sessions and be inspired at the VQ Learner of the Year Award ceremony.

Individuals who are using their vocational qualifications to inspire others and who are achieving beyond their peers will be the focus of the VQ Learner of the Year Award Ceremony.

And who better to host the Award Ceremony in the company of the six inspiring finalists and try her hand at 'have-a-go' skills sessions than Welsh wonder woman Lowri Morgan. Together, they'll make a veritable crowd of amazing individuals who grab life with both hands.

Lowri is an accomplished singer, musician and award-winning TV presenter. But above all that, she is the Welsh ultra-marathon runner who earlier this year won what must be the toughest event on the ultra marathon calendar, the 6633 Ultra: a non-stop self sufficient race over a distance of 350 miles in a frozen world where average daily temperatures are -25C. She faced eight days in severe Arctic conditions. She not only won the race, but was the only person to reach the finishing line - her fellow competitors dropped out three days before the end.

On top of the have-a-go sessions, masterclasses and VQ Learner of the Year Awards Ceremony, students, trainees and members of the public will be invited to quiz Lowri on her motivations, her trials, her tribulations and her role as VQ ambassador.

Joining Lowri will be the Welsh Government Deputy Minister for Skills, Jeff Cuthbert AM, the Chair of the National Training Federation for Wales Arwyn Watkins, and the Chair of ColegauCymru / CollegesWales David Jones.

Also on stage at the Awards Ceremony will be the six inspirational finalists who are proving themselves to be a cut above their peers.
