Adult Learners’ Week is a great opportunity to showcase what you have to offer, to connect with people in Wales and inspire them to take up education and skills. We can support and promote your courses, events, and learning resources through our events calendar. Scroll down for further information.


18th – 24th September 2023 with promotional activity taking place throughout the month.

Join the campaign partnership and you’ll be part of a major collaboration to reach more people across Wales with information, advice and opportunities to have a go at learning something new:

Adult Learners’ Week is an annual campaign coordinated in partnership with the Welsh Government. It’s a united effort to spread the message about lifelong learning we want to inspire people to seek advice and guidance on the opportunities available to them to upskill, to improve their confidence and wellbeing, to flourish in their careers and develop a love for learning throughout life.

Each year we work with a range of partners to plan and deliver a variety of online and in-person taster sessions, short courses, open days, information and advice, and special events to celebrate adult learning.

Since launching this platform we have built on our campaign partnership with over 150 registered providers, over 330,000 page views, and 54,000 users have visited the campaign platform.

To make 2023 even more successful, we need your support to promote lifelong learning opportunities.

Adult Learners’ Week is a great opportunity to signpost your information, advice and guidance. Promote your new and existing learning provision for adults and pathways available for them to re-train, upskill, build social connections and support health and wellbeing. Share the campaign information with your learners, hubs, community groups, staff and wider networks.


Join the conversation on social media to promote and raise awareness of Adult Learners’ Week. Follow us on social media and tag us in your campaign activity using the handles and tags: Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, LinkedIn #neverstoplearning and #adultlearnersweek.


Raise the profile of adult learning and highlight what more could be done to widen access to learning and skills for adults. Share your policy and research, launch a publication or write an article piece on the priorities and the building blocks needed to make Wales a nation of second chances – what are the exisiting barriers and equally, what are the successes?


Word of mouth is a powerful tool and catalyst for many people who are looking for a new direction and pathway in life. Work with your learning advocates to organise an event in your community or focus on learner voice activity to inspire other people to take the first step.
