The tenth anniversary of Adult Learners’ Week (ALW) in Australia was celebrated from 1-8 September, with hundreds of events, workshops and open days providing learning opportunities for adult learners and supporting the event theme of ‘a pathway to adult learning in your community and workplace’.

The major national event was ‘Learn @ Work Day’, with the goal of drawing attention to the strategic importance of effective learning in the workplace. The international guest speaker for ALW 2005 was Dr Alan Tuckett OBE, director of the UK’s National Institute of Adult Continuing Education and an experienced campaigner for adult education and lifelong learning who helped pioneer Adult Learners’ Week in Australia.
