Free Training Opportunity for CEN Members

7 Sep 2016 10:13 AM

We are delighted to inform you of a terrific opportunity to avail of a free blended learning course as part of our ‘Community Education for a Better Tomorrow’ programme. This training will enable participants to critically reflect on community education and quality assurance in community education provision. Governance and organisational development strategies will also be examined, evaluating approaches most appropriate for community education.

A flipped classroom approach will underpin teaching and learning strategies allowing participants to co-create knowledge about quality assurance in the community education sector.

The programme takes places over eight weeks involving six online sessions, self-directed learning and two face to face workshops, from the 6th October until the 1st December 2016. The six online sessions will be hosted in hubs across the country. Any CEN members applying for the training must specify, in their application form, at least one hub where they would like to attend the six online sessions.

The deadline for our free online ‘Community Education for a Better Tomorrow’ programme has been extended to Tue 20th September (Midnight). Some places are still available for Longford, Cork, Wexford and Limerick. Click here for more information or please contact:
