EPALE UK Impact on Adult Learning Photo Competition 15 July - 12 August 2019

Formal learning can lead to qualifications that encourage a learner to continue with their education or embark on a career. Non-formal learning may not result in qualifications, but will provide a structured process whereby a learner can obtain new skills, for example language skills or learning to play a musical instrument. Informal learning may be more obscure, but often results in the acquisition of little gems of knowledge that can benefit many aspects of someone’s life – think your grandmother showing you how she makes an easy apple pie, which you now make as a weekend treat and can have ready on the table within a short time of starting the preparation process – this saves you time and effort, and is something you really enjoy sharing with the important people in your life. 

No matter what kind of learning takes place, a learner can gain essential life skills and soft skills that may allow them to become part of a bigger community, build confidence, combat isolation and develop social and civic skills and lead to further learning.

From 12pm 15 July 2019 to 12pm 12 August 2019, EPALE UK will be holding the Star Supporter Competition and asking UK users to submit photographs that demonstrate the impact of adult learning, whether formal, non-formal or informal. These will be accompanied by a text caption of up to 200 words that explains what the photograph shows and how it demonstrates how learning positively impacts on adults. The winning entry will receive a prize to the value of £100 and will be invited to attend our annual conference in October 2019.
