Adult learning Australia celebrates 60th anniversary

Adult learning Australia celebrates 60th anniversary

By ‘lifewide learning’ we mean developing the skills and knowledge required to engage in meaningful work, to participate fully as a citizen in a vibrant democracy, to live in harmony in a diverse, multi-cultural and rapidly changing society and to manage one’s health and personal wellbeing at all ages including in later life.

This video takes a look at some of the highlights over the years:
