Over 80 adult learners were recognised at an event at Dalkeith Miners Club last month. 

The Lifelong Learning & Employability (LLE) Celebration of Adult Learning event, 21 June, marked the achievements and successes of those who have taken part in a wide variety of Midlothian Council’s learning programmes.

The event offered learners, joined by friends and family, the opportunity to socialise with other learners and their families, look at displays of learners work, visit partnership agencies information stalls and watch a short film featuring learners from LLE groups talking about their experiences.

The provost said:  

“It was great to see such a wide variety of adult learners together to celebrate their achievements in adult learning.”
