This September, we invite you to join us in celebrating Community Education with the launch of our Community Education Map.
Throughout September we are calling on Community Education organisations to #PutYourselfOnTheMap. If you work in Community Education or know people who do, please get involved and spread the word! Encourage your peers to put themselves on the map and show the amazing work of Community Education organisations across the whole island of Ireland. Community Education organisations can #PutYourselfOnTheMap through the form on our website.
We have been privileged to collaborate with the Community Education Facilitators’ Association (CEFA) in developing this resource we know will bring lots of value to the sector.
This campaign is part of our 2022-2023 project ‘Inclusive Recovery and Transformation: Adult Learning Post-Covid-19’ as part of the New European Agenda for Adult Learning.
We’ve lots of exciting events planned for the month ahead.
