NOCN supports Festival of Learning and 'Have a Go Month'
Posted 1 March 2018
NOCN is proud to be sponsoring the Festival of Learning 2018 and will be working with the Learning and Work Institute and campaign partner Hotcourses UK to encourage businesses, education providers and learning organisations to get involved.
Learning benefits not just the individual but also their families, their communities, their employer, and the wider economy. But one million fewer adults are learning than five years ago and many say that they aren’t interested in developing their skills, that they feel too old or don’t have the confidence to learn something new. Each year, Festival of Learning showcases thousands of opportunities for adults and families to engage in learning through Have a Go Month, which takes place in June.
From 1 March 2018, Hotcourses UK, the UK’s number one online course search, will host a calendar of events for all organisations to use to promote their taster sessions, open days, lectures and other learning activities. To be eligible for inclusion on the Have a Go Month calendar, events must be free of charge and take place in England during June. Organisations hosting learning events for Festival of Learning can access free promotional resources through the online partner hub, such as brand assets, posters, template media invitations, planning kit and much more. Festival of Learning also encourages organisations to publicise their events on social media. Any event promoted with the campaign hashtag #lovetolearn will be re-shared by Festival of Learning.
