13/04/2010 00:00:00

The Limerick Community Education Network (LCEN) , launched their first strategic plan covering the period 2010 – 2013 in Southill Area Centre recently. The plan ...demonstrates LCEN’s commitment to the provision of quality adult learning opportunities and helps to raise the profile of this critical, but often invisible sector which is so important in the lives of many people across Limerick City” said Mary Hamilton, Adult Education Officer with Limerick City AES.

LCEN work in partnership with LCAES to provide quality educational opportunities in community settings in Limerick City.

During the ceremony, young mother Emily O’ Donoghue was presented with a full FETAC Level 5 Childcare certificate.  Emily had completed a number of modules in different centres throughout the city. The achievement highlights the flexibility of community based education where learners can participate in courses in many different centres.

The importance of Community Education in initiating other community activities was highlighted by Community Education Tutor Caron Tierney. She told the audience of two groups who had participated in a gardening course and through this entered a competition which resulted in a grant towards a community food initiative. This initiative will promote healthy living and eating by supporting communities to grow food in their own areas.
