Adult Learners’ Week Conference: Enriching lives, Inspiring learners
This conference jointly organised by NIACE and the British Library will explore how the concepts of culture and community can inspire and motivate adults to become active learners and consider how informal and non-formal learning help adults to enrich their own lives and the lives of those around them.
It will also highlight ways in which providers of learning opportunities are innovating in respect of curriculum design and delivery.
