Our holistic learner-centered approach and our range of adult learner supports facilitate participants to:
- Progress along an individual path of lifelong learning
- Develop personality
- Enhance their skills
- Access progression routes in terms of education and employment
- Become even more informed and active citizens
We have developed and refined a distinctive model of community education. “Transformative Learning” embodies a curriculum that touches the mind, heart, body and soul in a belief that it can generate enough individual and communal energy to change lives and communities.
Essential adult learner supports ensure that all participants reach their goals. Information and communication technology is integrated across the curriculum. The Open Learning Centre provides students with access to a range of technologies.
Since 1999, we have welcomed over 6,000 participants through our doors. 1,251 awards were achieved by students on courses accredited by FETAC and QQI and ICS 6 and 7 in computer skills. At present over 400 adults participate in year long education programmes.
Online Community Education
Our Online Community Education programmes combine face-to-face workshops with online lectures and assignments. Discussion, interaction and teamwork make for both an enjoyable and rewarding learning experience. We use the latest educational technology, and work with Community Partners across Ireland so everyone can access the education they deserve. We make it easy for you to do your coursework at a time that suits you best. We work around your schedule, not the other way around.
