Winners of the Festival of Learning


Festival of Learning (previously Adult Learners’ Week) is the biggest celebration of lifelong learning in England.

Our mission is to highlight the benefits of learning, celebrate the achievements of adults who have used learning to transform their lives, and to encourage everyone to embrace lifelong learning.

Celebrating 25 years

On 7 June, we celebrated 25 years of the Festival of Learning and Adult Learners’ Week campaigns.

Award winners, partners and guest speakers joined this inspirational day of celebrations, including Learning and Work Institute’s Patron HRH Princess Royal.
