Join us here on Thursday 12 May, from 12.30-1.30pm to discuss the ins and outs of adult learning. It's an area of practice that has always been an integral part of the educational work that we do in the heritage sector.
The chat is timed to coincide with the inaugural Festival of Learning – an expanded, celebratory successor to the hugely successful, long-running Adult Learners’ Week. The Festival – delivered by the Learning and Work Institute (formerly NIACE) – is a major celebration of lifelong learning across England, from informal, participatory and community-level learning, to work-based training.
So, join me and my HLF colleague Amy, as well as Sara Peskett from First Base Housing in Brighton (@BHT_Sussex); Dean Veal, from UCL Museums (@deanveal); and freelancer/consultant Essex Havard (@_ALACS), and colleagues from the Learning & Work Institute (@LearnWorkUK) to discuss different types of adult learning programmes in heritage, and the positive impact they can have on everyone involved. And of course, ask us any questions about your own heritage learning programmes or ideas.
In the meantime, you can also read this new HLF blog on adult learning, heritage and the Festival of Learning: https://www.hlf.org.uk/about-us/news-features/getting-involved-adult-learning
