Adult Learners Week 


The Department of Employment, Education and Training invites you to become involved in Adult Learners Week, held from 1 to 8 September.

If you offer any form of learning in the week of 1 – 8 September 2006 – for example, courses, classes, lecturers, exhibitions, tours, training programs, tutoring, discussion groups – you could use AWL as an opportunity to celebrate and promote what you do in the wider community.

The events calendar for AWL will be advertised through local newspaper and radio. This is your opportunity to promote you adult learning activity for free and to be part of this national initiative.
