ADULT LEARNING ON THE AGENDA

 

There’s still time to put your name down for the adult learners conference which will be staged at the University of Lincolnshire & Humberside this weekend.

 

‘Lincolnshire Adult Learners 2000’ will be the first conference of its kind to be held in the county and will give delegates an opportunity to discuss adult learning and to expand informal networks.

 

The event on Saturday 6th May will begin with an informed view by Bill Newton-Dunn MEP on how European perspectives may affect adult learning in the UK.

 

Other speakers will be Pamela Weaver of the university’s Centre for Access and Lifelong Learning and Mike Carnaby, a former student of the year who describes himself as a man with a mission to encourage others to ‘return to learn’.

 

The event is organised by the Lincolnshire Adult Learners Promotion Group which comprises learning providers, statutory bodies and organisations including ULH, North Lincolnshire College and the Lincolnshire TEC.

 

The conference begins at 9.45am and is due to end at 4.30pm. To book a place contact Jacqueline Mayer in the university’s marketing department on 01522 886046.
