Adult Learners’ Week 2018 – Learning Changes Lives

September 1 – 8

This year the theme of Adult Learners’ Week is ‘Learning changes lives’.


We want to promote the idea that learning as an adult can help people turn their lives around and can be a transformative and happy experience. One of the key messages of Adult Learners’ Week is that learning is a lifelong activity.

Lifelong learners are adults who want to continually expand their skills, knowledge and interests.

During ALW2018, we want people to share and discuss how they have re-engaged with learning.

If your organisation offers any form of adult learning such as courses, classes, lectures, exhibitions, tours, training programs, tutoring, discussion groups – then Adult Week is an opportunity to celebrate and promote what you do.
