25 February-2 March 2013, Ireland
The National Adult Learning Organisation (AONTAS) believes that all adults in Ireland should have equal access to learning opportunities. Adult learning has a hugely important role to play in the economic and social future of Ireland. Adult learners and adult learning centres do vital work on a daily basis. The nationwide Adult Learners' Festival is about
- Celebrating adult learning and the achievements of adult learners
- Showcasing the work of adult education providers
- Promoting the work of AONTAS and the adult education sector
- Ensuring that adult education is placed firmly on the political agenda
If your organisation would like to become involved in the 2013 Festival, please contact AONTAS by e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org. More information on the festival here.
The STAR Awards are about recognising and celebrating the invaluable collaborative work undertaken by adult learning initiatives in our communities. In the current climate it's even more important that we continue to showcase the value of the sector in responding to the needs of individuals, communities, society and the economy.
The STAR Awards application process will open in early September 2012 so get your thinking hats on for great and innovative adult learning projects that you could nominate for 2013. More information here.
