The Adult Learners' Festival is a nationwide celebration of adult learning coordinated by the National Adult Learning Organisation (AONTAS). In the last eight years, the Festival has become a firm fixture on the adult learning calendar with events taking place nationwide, including anything from information sessions, taster workshops, sample lectures to small gatherings of people who love to learn. The Showcasing Teamwork, Awarding Recognition (STAR) Awards are an awards initiative coordinated by AONTAS as part of the annual Adult Learners' Festival to acknowledge the fantastic work undertaken by adult learning projects throughout Ireland. The awards celebrate the positive contribution that these projects make to our society, our economy and our local communities. 9 awards in total will be granted to adult learning projects based within the island of Ireland.
