About Adult Learners’ Week
Australia celebrates Adult Learners’ Week through hundreds of events designed to promote the benefits of learning – in the home, at work and in the wider community.
It is also a time for reflection; an opportunity for informed discussion about the current opportunities for adult learning in Australia to bring forth ideas for improvement.
Adult Learners’ Week started in the United Kingdom in 1992. The first Australian Adult Learners’ Week was held in 1995. It now includes events and activities held by sectors such as: community adult education, aged care, health, museums and environmental services.
Adult Learners’ Week Australia is supported by the Department of Industry and is coordinated by Adult Learning Australia. You can get the latest updates from the Adult Learners’ Week Facebook page or their website.
