Welcome to our first issue of Quest for 2020, which gathers stories about the impact of adult learning programs from around Australia.
In this issue you'll find stories about how a bridging literacy and numeracy class is opening new career and study opportunities for young mums in country Victoria, how traineeships in rural and regional towns in WA give young locals a reason to stay instead of moving away; how an all abilities choir in Queensland gives joy and meaning to its members; tips for using Instagram and more.
In Quest we feature stories about different kinds of adult community education from accredited classes through to informal activities that bring people together to learn skills, develop confidence and take on new challenges. And how the organisations behind these kinds of programs are working to improve the lives of people in their communities through the power of adult community education.
In these times of uncertainty, we need these good news stories more than ever. I hope you enjoy this latest issue. Don't forget you can also read and share individual stories from our current and past issues of Quest direct from our website through social media.
Feel free to share Quest through your networks and send me any feedback.
Stay safe and stay well.
