On the One Step Up Calendar we promote open days and information sessions hosted by Education and Training Boards, further education and training colleges, community centres, third level institutes and other learning centres all over the country. In 2018 approximately 7,000 people used One Step Up to find out about nearly 600 events nationwide. These events were submitted by adult and community education providers across Ireland via the One Step Up Calendar
