Donegal ETB would like to wish two of our Adult Literacy Organisers (ALOs), Joyce Burns and Brid McIntyre, all the best with their upcoming retirements. Joyce Burns, (ALO in Inishowen) started working with the programme on a part-time basis in 1991 and moved to her current post as ALO in 2000. Brid (ALO for Letterkenny/Milford areas) started as a volunteer for the service in 1997 and moved to her post as ALO in 2001.
Current and previous staff of the Learning for Living (Basic Education/Literacy) programme marked their upcoming retirements at a recent function; Joyce and Brid are pictured centre (left and right) along with Geraldine O’Haire, Sheila Davin, Adele McElhinney (ALO), Ann Kavanagh, Martina Needham (AEO) and Dolores MhicGeidigh (ALO). Our Basic Education (literacy) programme is one of the many programmes provided through our Further Education and Training (FET) service.
