AONTAS Adult Learners' Festival 2017

6 March 2017 - 10 March 2017

The 2017 AONTAS Adult Learners' Festival will take place from the 6th - 10th March 2017. The theme for the week is 'The Power and Joy of Learning'.

The Adult Learners' Festival is a nationwide celebration of adult learning coordinated by AONTAS, the National Adult Learning Organisation. Over the past decade, the Festival has become a firm fixture on the adult learning calendar with events taking place nationwide, including information sessions, taster workshops, sample lectures to small gatherings of people who love to learn.

AONTAS believes that all adults in Ireland should have equal access to learning opportunities. We believe that adult learning has a hugely important role to play in the economic and social future of Ireland. We know that adult learners and adult learning centres do vital work on a daily basis.

The Adult Learners' Festival is all about:

  • Celebrating adult learning and the achievements of adult learners
  • Showcasing the work of adult education providers
  • Promoting the work of AONTAS and the adult education sector
  • Ensuring that the adult learner is at the centre of adult and further education policy
