Adult Learners' Week
Adult Learners’ Week is the UK’s largest festival and celebration of adult learning, co-ordinated by NIACE Dysgu Cymru and core-funded by the Welsh Government, and the European Social Fund. The week offers adults the chance to have a go at learning something new by trying out one of the hundreds of free taster sessions that happen across Wales during the week, and an opportunity for learning providers to showcase their provision.
The Week is run by the National Institute of Adult Continuing Education Dysgu Cymru (NIACE DC). NIACE DC was established in 1985 to advise national and local government on issues affecting adult learners in Wales. Visit the NIACE DC website.
