2019 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 2019 is Community Education, enabling individual opportunity and developing pathways to further education, VET traineeships and employment.
