We Are The Change

Learning is incredibly important for First Nations young and mature women. The education of First Nations women is critical for the overall social and economic advancement of First Nations communities. Education can provide First Nations women with the skills and knowledge needed towards making informed decisions in terms of healthcare, education and career progression.

Social and economic advancement

Skills and competency

Knowledge and confidence

Empowerment and self-determination

Learning after secondary school as a mature aged student allows adults to develop valuable skills to improve career prospects and expand their professional knowledge. Developing literacy and numeracy skills in adulthood also gives individuals a better ability to reach their full potential.

Adult learning can play a vital role in closing the gap between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians by providing a supported platform to further develop skills and knowledge. First Nations women have in particular dealt with a legacy of discrimination and exclusion from the mainstream education system.

Investing in First Nations adult learning can support First Nations women to achieve their goals and ultimately create a positive change in educational, social and economic outcomes.

iED BLOG: The importance of Adult Education

Education is a privilege that not many people get to have. One of the major characteristics of education is that it has no age. People are never too young or too old to be educated.

Adult education is very important nowadays. Especially for adults who did not have the opportunity to receive proper education at a younger age. Education is, after all, a lifelong journey and for some people, the right type of education might be something they will find later in life. No one is to say that the path you will choose as a young person will be the path that you will take at the end.

There are many reasons why adults need to continue educating themselves, one way or another. Here are some of the most important ones.

Demand in the labour market is growing. Employees need to know a little bit about everything that is connected to their work. Adult education is a great way to achieve that. Fast and easy classes that allow employees to evolve, produce better results, and increase their employability.

With new technologies emerging almost daily, older people might not be able to keep up. Unless they start educating themselves, they are most likely going to fall behind. Now from a certain age after, that is not such a big problem. However, if you still are and are planning to be part of the labour market for at least ten more years before retiring, enhancing your educational background is not debatable.

When attempting to build a solid career, sometimes retraining is not an option, it is an obligation. We need to understand that today, due to the evolution of technology, some jobs will become or have already become obsolete. Adults performing those jobs will need to now focus on something else.
It does not necessarily have to be in a completely different sector. They could retrain their current skills to take them to the next level. Or you could choose to start something completely new. Whichever the case, education will be a necessity.

Adult education is essential to keep the mind active. Most people believe that the mind starts to lose its sharpness when we grow old. That is not true. If a person has been doing the same job from the age of 25 to the age of 35 without trying to challenge themselves with new topics and knowledge, their mind will start to lose its sharpness.
Studies have shown that learning a new language or perfecting new skills is a great way to keep your mind active. After all, exercising your mind is just as important as exercising your body.

There is absolutely no doubt that being an active and creative person can have a great effect on your life. The more things a person knows the more creative a person can be. Education helps you think outside of the box. It makes you more creative and more outgoing. Two qualities that every person needs to have.
