The annual AONTAS Adult Learners’ Festival event is scheduled for next week from 25th February – 2nd March 2013. To celebrate this event Adult Education Community Providers and Co.Donegal VEC’s Adult Education Service have a number of events scheduled to take place throughout the county aimed at providing information to adult learners, showcasing the value of adult learning and celebrating the achievements of adult learners who have come through the process.
“An estimated 15,000 adults are involved annually in formal and community based adult and further education programmes in the county and more than 1,200 attended the recent Adult Learner Fair in Letterkenny at which Jim McGuiness, Manager of the GAA All-Ireland Senior Champions Team 2012 gave an inspirational address – all this points to an increase in demand for adult education services in Donegal”.- says Cróna Gallagher, Adult Education Officer with Donegal VEC.
