The countdown has begun to the start of the largest festival of learning in the UK. Adult Learners’ Week - which runs from 20th-26th May 2006 and is organised by the NIACE - is an ideal opportunity for adults to consider how learning can transform their lives.
Thousands of events will be happening across the country in colleges, local shops and supermarkets, factories and businesses, libraries and museums, community centres and adult education colleges.
These will give adults the opportunity to get a taste of learning at a time, a pace and place that suits them. Adult Learners Week in 2005 attracted over 50,000 adults to 10,000 different learning events.
