13 Prill 2012

The Adult Learners' Festival 2012 took place in february with over three hundred and thirty free events around the country. Each day was designated with a particular theme including Celebrate Learning, Green Learning, Learning Communities, Learning for Work and Lobby for Learning.

This is the sixth year that AONTAS has also organised the STAR Awards within the Festival. They received 119 nominations which give an insight into how adult education can respond to the learning needs of adults. Initiatives that have been shortlisted for these awards have really demonstrated strong outcomes to their work - helping people move onto further and higher education and employment. Through collaboration at local level, these initiatives are enhancing education services for people, contributing to the development of their communities and seeding ideas for small but sustainable social enterprises.
