Adult Learners Week (ALW) 2017

Adult Learners’ Week 2017 runs from 1–8 September and incorporates International Literacy Day, which is celebrated annually on September 8.

ALW celebrates the commitment of communities to increase adult learning opportunities and to recognise and honour individuals who have shown how learning opportunities have transformed their lives and communities.

Adult Learners Week is a UNESCO initiative supported in Australia by the Commonwealth Department of Education and Training and coordinated by Adult Learning Australia.
