It’s never too late to learn, and Adult Learners Week 2021, which runs from 1-8 September, will encourage lifelong learners who want to expand their skills, knowledge and interests. The Yarraville Community Centre (YCC) will be showcasing the breadth of learning opportunities available and highlighting how learning something new can shift your perspective and open up all sorts of possibilities and pathways.

    ‘Change your story’ is the theme for the 26th year Adult Learners Week, which promotes the idea that people can make a fresh start, take their lives in new directions, create a new future through adult education.

    YCC will celebrate with a range of activities and a story writing competition for students.

    “We will be encouraging people in our community to learn something new and to realise how further education opens up all sorts of possibilities and pathways for the future. Our workshops are a great way to upskill or learn more” Says Christine McCall, YCC CEO.

    YCC will be offering an incentive to start learning something new with 10% saving on all workshops for a limited time as well as a writing competition for students at YCC.
