The Adult Learners Week project is funded through the Northern Territory Government - Department of Business, designed to celebrate and promote lifelong learning. It recognises achievements in and raises awareness of adult education, providing an opportunity for organisations to promote what they do in the wider community.

STePS Education & Training will provide face to face information & support for learners undertaking training programs in Alice Springs and remote areas. The event schedule below outlines the weeks events, to book courses please visit our course schedule page.
Community Leaders in Girl Guides and Scouts will discuss how formal adult training programs are supported within the activities of not for profit organisations, and how this translates into real employability skills. Group Training NT and other organisations will be supported during the week through information sessions anddiscussions of apprenticeships and traineeships, and reciprocal information sessions will be delivered in support of GTNT's Apprenticeship & Traineeship Futures.
An industry forum will review training needs of new and existing employees in Child Care services, with representatives of services and training providers, as well as NTG representatives and interested parties.
The Aboriginal Liaison Officers from Alice Springs Hospital will discuss opportunities for contextualised workplace learning, highlighting how training is for everyone, and how formal or informal learning can be fun and engaging.
On Monday 8th Sept we will celebrate with the learners and educators, while presenting certificates for the weeks formal learning outcomes.
