Adult Learners Week is celebrated at the beginning of Spring with hundreds of events and activities promoting the benefits of learning. It is a UNESCO initiative supported in Australia by the Commonwealth Department of Education, Skills and Employment and coordinated by Adult Learning Australia. Adult Learners Week runs from 1–8 September and incorporates International Literacy Day, which is celebrated annually on September 8.
This year's theme encourages people to seize the moment and take advantage of opportunities to learn something new, whatever their age, background or previous educational history. Adult Learners Week gives us all an opportunity to celebrate, reflect on and stimulate our “little grey cells”. It also gives us an opportunity to highlight the discipline and progress that Read Write Now students have made and are committed to.
