Are you a Community Group (large or small) which is interested in organising courses or classes in your own locality?
Have you heard of Donegal Education & Training Board’s Community Education Support Programme? Donegal man Coleman
The programme is designed to offer financial and other supports (such as finding a suitable tutor or venue) to community groups which plan, organise & deliver Educational/Recreational courses in their own local area.
Community Education Facilitators Catherine Friel and Aidan Mc Closkey are available to help your group to offer local opportunities for learning new skills, meeting new people and participating more in your community.
Examples of courses currently being offered by groups in different areas are art, gardening, personal development, crafts and health & fitness and boat building; but you can offer anything which is of interest to people in your area.
We would especially welcome enquiries from groups who are not currently availing of support from the programme.
More information, including an application form and associated guidelines, is available here.
