ACE Aotearoa is the lead agency for the Adult and Community Education (ACE) sector. Colin McGregor’s background is in the public sector, in a variety of roles.
Colin will discuss the findings of the environmental scan recently undertaken by ACE Aotearoa and what those findings reveal about participation by the older learner. He will also share some thoughts on the increasing demand from Aotearoa’s ageing population for lifelong learning opportunities. The aim of Colin’s presentation is to raise awareness about the importance of lifelong learning at all life stages (but especially as we age) and the range of community-based opportunities. He would also like people to consider how we can ensure access to learning in the future.
