Festival of Learning (previously Adult Learners' Week)

Festival of Learning is the biggest celebration of lifelong learning in England.

Festival of Learning celebrates the remarkable achievements of adults who have used learning to transform their lives, and highlights how lifelong learning benefits society and the economy.

Supporting Festival of Learning by nominating learners and hosting ‘have a go’ events raises the profile of the learning opportunities available, encourages adults to try something new, and ultimately creates a real celebration of the joy of learning.

We are pleased to announce nominations for Festival of Learning 2017 awards are now open and close 31 March.
