Celebrating Adult Learners
Adult Learners’ Week 18 – 24 May 2013
Adult Learners’ Week is a national celebration, co-ordinated by NIACE, of the benefits of lifelong learning and is the perfect opportunity to explore the many types of learning available to adults from all walks of life.
Through thousands of events and awards ceremonies, Adult Learners’ Week:
- recognises the achievements of outstanding individuals and innovative learning projects;
- encourages participation in different kinds of learning, whether it is to improve prospects in a current role, start a new career, improve physical and mental health, learn skills to support family and community, improve essential skills for personal development and to deal with the demands of everyday life, or learn just for fun;
- offers organisations the chance to showcase the learning opportunities that they provide; and
- shapes the debate about adult learning.
The ECA will be helping celebrate adult learning during the week by providing a family art workshop in Norwich which will see parents and children create art inspired by nature. ECA Chair and CEO Bernard Godding will be attending the East of England Regional Awards for Adult Learners’ Week at Duxford Imperial War Museum on the 23rd May.
