2018 Adult Learners' Week

Adult Learners' Week runs from 1-8 September throughout Australia and internationally. The week recognises achievements in adult learning and aims to encourage adults, not currently engaged in community activities or learning, to come and try something new.

In South Australia the theme for 2018 is Lifelong Learning: Learning Changes Lives, exploring the positive impact lifelong learning has on our lives.
