About the Adult Learners' Festival 2021

The 15th annual AONTAS Adult Learners’ Festival will take place from 1st – 5th March 2021. While we usually encourage adult learning providers throughout Ireland to open their centre doors for free open days, events and workshops, this year will look a little different as we adapt to the current COVID-19 pandemic and the restrictions in place. In 2021 we will run our first ever virtual Adult Learners’ Festival online.

By building partnerships and working together at local and national levels, we will send a strong message of hope to Ireland’s Adult Learning sector and promote the importance of Educational Equality and Mitigating Educational Disadvantage in a time of COVID-19.

The theme of this year's festival is "Building Back Better Together - #BetterTogether". Click here for more information and to find out how you can get involved.
