EPALE UK Star Supporter Competition! Health, wellbeing & adult learning

Language: EN


EPALE UK Star Supporter banner

EPALE UK are excited to launch our first ‘EPALE UK Star Supporter’ Competition! This competition is open to all UK individuals and organisations working in the field of adult education.

Adult learning provides the tools for people to influence their environment and, according to UNESCO, helps to ‘make them healthier’. Adult learners develop greater confidence through their learning, which helps them to access and understand information, systems and support, as well as participate in groups and networks, which facilitate healthier lifestyles.
