Adult Learners’ Week: 20-26 September 2021

Adult Learners' Week is the only campaign that puts learners at the forefront of its design and delivery. We make sure that adult learners know that the week is theirs and that they can shape it any way they want to to help encourage others into learning. Adult Learners’ Week in Scotland is widely recognised across the world as being at the forefront of learner engagement and involvement, and leads the way for other countries and governments to make sure that learners have a voice and are actively involved in local, national and international decision making. We’ve achieved great success over the years thanks to the great team of partners who help make things happen and plan the local and national events organised to celebrate learner achievements. Throughout the country, all of our partners create opportunities for adults to participate in Adult Learning by getting them to try something new. If you're a provider and want to help or have new ideas you'd like us to think about come along to the providers' campaigns meetings and let us hear what you'd like to see happen. From 1-8 September, learners and providers across Scotland are working with us to celebrate, highlight and promote learning opportunities available in every part of the country. We're planning all sorts of activities and are looking for your help to make them successful. Could you help organise and Culture Taste? Somewhere food and history can be shared and celebrated to help bring people from different communities together! Or what about a Multi lingual Story telling event, or performance; poetry readings; spinning and weaving workshop; dancing together sessions-you name it the list is endless. Or maybe you'd rather take another theme and organise an event aimed at older people to help them get involved in their local community and help reduce isolation?
