Adult Learners Week 2017

Adult Learners Week runs 4-10 September 2017. Nelson Public Libraries and Adult Learning Support are planning a programme to celebrate the week.


Adult Learners Week this year is 4-10 September, incorporating International Literacy Day on September 8. This year we are combining with Adult Learning Support to celebrate the week and promote adult learning opportunities in Nelson and the region.
Elma Turner Library will host events, and we will feature:

  • A giant scrabble tournament – involving teams from the adult learning sector
  • A display on the red wall of learning opportunities in the region
  • A community corner table, where people involved in community education, in any form (from courses to providing financial support or advice) can provide information and advice about what they offer
  • Taster sessions of different types of learning opportunities.
  • A panel session about distance and online learning for tertiary students – featuring organisations providing adult learning and student experiences.
  • A prize draw for new and existing learners who engage with the week

Please contact Nicola (nicola.harwood@ncc.govt.nz) or Elise (elise@adultlearning.co.nz) if you or your organisation is interested in being part of this week.
