Adult learning: the ripple effect

David Hughes, chief executive of the National Institute of Adult Continuing Education (NIACE), discusses the impact of adult learning on the wider society.

Up and down the country, hundreds of adult learners have been recognised for their incredible achievements in education, as part of Adult learners’ Week (14-20 June). Hosted by NIACE in conjunction with thousands of partner organisation, this celebration highlights not only individual successes, but also the transformational power of lifelong learning in terms of health, well-being, employment prospects and so much more for the learners themselves as well as benefits for communities, families, businesses and the economic growth of the UK as a whole.
