It's Adult Learners' Week!

Adult Learners’ Week runs from the 18th to the 24th May this year, so it’s already well underway. The event is a celebration of lifelong learning and aims to highlight some of the benefits it can bring. You can find out more from the official website which includes Learners’ Stories of their achievements. Inspiring stuff!

As a university library, adult learning is really important to us and we try to offer you plenty of resources to help with your studies. You’re all adult learners, but some of you might also be teachers of adults, or perhaps have a particular interest in the value of lifelong learning. You can find out more about adult learning by searching our Catalogue or Digital Library. If you’d rather browse our shelves, you’ll find plenty of books at 374 on the first floor of Townhill Library.

If Adult Learners’ Week has inspired you to think about taking another course, why not have a look at the BBC’s Adult Learners page for inspiration. You could improve your spelling and grammar, learn to cook, learn another language, brush up on your IT skills… All for free!

  1. In Adult Learners' Week our thoughts turn to learning skills – whether for work or just for the fun of it. The Esperanto Association of Britain is offering a free postal or email course in the international language – marked by a network of voluntary tutors.

    The free course is suitable for those who would like a quick taster, and gives an overview of the language in twelve bite-sized portions. Once the learner has received the first lesson, they simply return their answers. Then the tutor replies with guidance and the next lesson.

    For details of the free course, contact:
