Welcome to our first issue of Quest for 2021. This issue features stories about the impact of adult learning programs from around Australia.
You'll find stories about Australia's adult literacy crisis and how experts suggest we address it, how a small Tasmanian town is opening up opportunities for its residents by teaching them to drive, and how a Wangaratta based adult education centre has revamped a course in foundation skills to help people focus on their personal as well as their educational goals.
In Quest we feature stories about how people develop confidence to take on challenges and overcome disadvantage through adult education. And how the organisations behind these kinds of adult education programs are working to improve the lives of people in their communities through the power of learning.
In these times of uncertainty we need these good news stories more than ever so we encourage you to share Quest through your networks. You can read full issues of Quest or a selection of individual stories on our website.
I hope you enjoy this issue. Feel free to send me any feedback.
