The Festival of Learning, led by the National Institute of Adult Continuing Education (NIACE), invites organisations and communities to take part in adult learning activities
to showcase the wide range of opportunities and resources available to adults hoping to continue or resume their education.
Carol Thomas, Director of Curriculum and Performance at NULC said: "We are very excited to be part of the Festival of Learning this year by showcasing what NULC has to offer. Adult learning is an important part of what we do and we look forward to opening our doors to anyone who is interested in continuing or returning to education and helping them to kick-start their learning journey."
David Hughes, CEO of NIACE, commented: "The Festival of Learning helps people to learn and to discover the wide range of opportunities there are to gain new skills, expand their abilities and transform their lives. I hope that people take advantage of these exciting events at NULC and recognise that you're never too old to learn."
