Delegates talking round a tableCampaigns & Events

NIACE runs a number of high profile campaigns, to raise the demand for learning and skills in England and to celebrate outstanding learning achievements. We also run a range of events and training courses to support the interests of adult learners in different contexts.


  • Adult Learners’ Week is the UK’s largest and longest-running festival of learning with the aim of promoting adult learning in all its diversity.
  • Quick Reads started in 2006 and helps adults who are new to reading by supporting them with a series of short, exciting books written by bestselling authors and celebrities.
Over a 12 month period in 2012-2013, 95% of participants across 119 NIACE events were highly satisfied with the events they attended


We organise a range of events including policy and information briefing days, provider and learner consultation events, topical seminars, focus groups and staff learning and development days. They provide a forum for lively debate and an exchange of views and knowledge from expert speakers in the field, which include NIACE’s professional speakers.
