The 15th annual AONTAS Adult Learners’ Festival will take place from 1 – 5 March 2021. Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic and the restrictions in place, it will be the first ever virtual Adult Learners’ Festival online. By building partnerships and working together at local and national levels, a strong message of hope will be sent to Ireland’s Adult Learning sector and the importance of Educational Equality and Mitigating Educational Disadvantage in a time of COVID-19 will be promoted.
“The theme of this year’s festival is ‘Building Back Better Together – #BetterTogether’. While we can’t come together for our usual in-person events, we are excited to collaborate with our members and organisations in the sector to deliver an exciting calendar of virtual events and opportunities to engage online. Join us and get involved from 1st – 5th March – this is your week to highlight the incredible work that your organisation has been doing, so let us join together to raise the profile of adult learning across Ireland.”
