What Adult Learners’ Week participants are saying…
“I made new friends and I feel more confident since attending an Adult Learners’ Week event.”
“It was a good opportunity to go and do something positive for own well-being, it was really enjoyable, and the Tutor was excellent.”
“Because of Adult Learners’ Week, my husband found out about a course near him, which he is now starting next week.”
“It’s nice to know that there is help out there for adults, as adults can sometimes be forgotten about.”
“The events I attended have helped me a lot. I’ve had issues with drug and alcohol addiction, so it was helpful to go and talk to other people who have been in similar situations wanting to get back into education.”
Adult Learners’ Week is coordinated by Learning and Work Institute, an independent policy, research & development organisation dedicated to lifelong learning, full employment & inclusion. We have worked closely with a wide range of partners and stakeholders for over 25 years to support the delivery of Adult Learners’ Week in Wales.
