The biggest celebration of lifelong learning in England, Festival of Learning aims to increase participation in learning and recognise the achievements of adult learners.

Learning and Work Institute is proud to have co-ordinated Festival of Learning for more than 25 years and we are ambitious about the future.

Why sponsor our campaign?

Festival of Learning Awards

Learners’ stories are at the heart of what we do. Help celebrate and showcase the many benefits of learning for individuals, families, communities and employers.

Have a Go Month

Every year, hundreds of providers across the country organise Festival of Learning Have a Go events. Partnering with us can help us provide and promote even more local events to attract more lifelong learners.
