Description: The Adult Learners` Week (ALW) promoting lifelong learning has been organised by ANDRAS in co-operation with the Ministry of Education and Research since 1998.
The week begins with the opening ceremony. In order to broaden the ALW basis in the republic, a different county has been chosen for the opening ceremony each year. A highlight of the opening event is the recognition of the Learner and Educator of the Year, and also the Education Friendly Organisation and Library of the Year. The closing event of the week is Adult Education Forum devised primarily for the policy makers of lifelong learning.
Respective events take place at this time: open days in educational institutions, family days, workshops etc. As a result of continual development of the ALW as an extensive promotional event of lifelong learning, an all-the-year-round, over-Estonian, operating lifelong learning network has been created. During the preparation of information campaign we run information seminars for the members of the network in all the counties; county coordinators and members of the national support group also receive special training.
