Adult Learners Week
1st – 8th September
Adult Learners Week is an international celebration of lifelong and lifewide learning. We encourage Australians to use Adult Learners Week to reflect on your own learning journey and investigate opportunities to “take the next step”. We encourage adult education providers to use the opportunity to market their courses and programs. Visit the Adult Learners Week Website for more information.
Message from Senator Ursula Stephens
Who are the funniest and most interesting people in your life? When you really think about it, those people are the ones who are always trying new things or reading new things, and who want to tell you about what they’ve discovered. Adult learning is about expanding your horizons. It might be work related, and then again, it might not! It might be formal, structured learning, then again, it might be the learning that happens by chance.Live to learn and learn to live is my motto, because, the brain is one of the most vital parts of our body – and medical research shows that the old saying is very true – “use it or lose it!” So, in Adult Learners Week, get out there and give your brain cells a workout – there are so many events to choose from, there’s sure to be something to inspire you. Congratulations to all involved in making Adult Learners Week a wonderful success.
