About Adult Learners' Week

Adult Learners' Week is a national celebration of lifelong learning; the biggest in England. The Week is now in its 24th year and we are really proud that it has inspired Adult Learners' Week celebrations across the world.

In 2015, more than 1200 learners, projects, tutors and employers were nominated for an award, and around 3000 'have a go' activities were held by providers, employers, local authorities and community centres.
