Building a Manifesto for Adult Learning
For the past few years FALNI has kept the flag flying for Adult Learners' Week in Northern Ireland. There was a large attendance at a conference held in NICVA in May 2013 to disucss the future of adult learning. Taking the learning and enthusiasm from this event, FALNI is inviting anyone interested in keeping adult learning high on the agenda to the Long Gallery, Stormont on Monday, 16 June from 10.00am - 12.30pm to help them construct a Manifesto for Adult Learning that we can all use to lobby in the months leading up to the next Assembly elections in May 2015.
This will be a participative event as FALNI want you to identify the key 'asks' around which the manifesto can be written, given your understanding of the learning needs of adults in the coming years and how investment in adult learning can help build a better economy and society for us all. We all need to be champions for adult learning and FALNI believe the manifesto will help focus our efforts and focus the minds of the politicians too.
Please request a booking form from [email protected] and return before Monday, 2 June to secure a place and to help make arrangements with Parliament Buildings.
