It’s time for Rural Women New Zealand members to organise some great events for Adult Learners’ Week in September.
Adult Learners’ Week (7-13 September) is a celebration of all lifelong learning. It is a chance to promote the many benefits of adult learning especially in the community.
Government funding is currently available to ACE providers who offer programmes for learners whose initial learning was unsuccessful or need to improve foundation skills such as literacy (including digital) and numeracy, and for strengthening social cohesion. However all event ideas will be considered for Adult Learners’ Week funding.
Two levels of funding are available in 2015: $300 for one off events & $750 for full programmes of events such as a week of taster courses, programme expo, festival or whanau fun day.
Closing date for applications is 29 May 2015
