Workshop: Thursday, May 30th 2019, 11.00 to 1600
Location: Futurelearn, 1-11 Hawley Crescent, Camden Town, London NW1 8NP run by AEA (Association for Education and Ageing)
AEA present: Older Adult Education and Learning: the way forward
Ransackers supports this workshop and invites any later life learners who can get to North London to attend.
The Workshop will be discussing the issues, and then putting together a response, to the Adult Education Commission’s Call for ideas and evidence on the way forward for Adult Education in the UK in the future*. The Call comes on the occasion of the centenary of the post WWW1 Ministry of Reconstruction’s hugely important Report to Government, which established the principles of adult education provision in the UK up to the 1990s.
This Workshop will focus on the education and learning of older people in the UK in the next decades and collect together views and arguments that will be forwarded to the Commission after the workshop. A central issue will be the role of the State.
The format on May 30 will be a pre-workshop collection of responses to the introductory document, introductory short inputs, small group working sessions and concluding debate.
All welcome. Free attendance
