Festival of Learning

What is the Festival of Learning?

The Festival of Learning celebrates achievements of adult learners in England. Previously known as Adult Learners' Week, the awards seek to highlight the difference people have made through continued learning. Whether it's an individual turning their life around through education or a project that has had a positive impact on a community, the array of inspiring stories show just how transformative further education can be.

'Have a Go' Month

The Festival of Learning encourages organisations and colleges to host free taster and 'have a go' events throughout June for people who may be considering taking a course. You may want to unleash the artist in you or get ahead with a new skill set in coding. We're confident there's something for everyone.
