Kerry ETB’s Community Education Programme

Kerry ETB’s Community Education Programme

  • The Community Education Programme aims to create an openness to alternative structures and sharing in learning rather than competing in it.
  • Community Education also aims to locate personal, individual experiences within the broader social and political context. Community Education promotes learning that supports individuals and groups to address issues in their community and empowers the development of a group of adults who have the confidence to participate as active citizens.
  • Kerry ETB’s Community Education Facilitator has solid links with the community and voluntary sector, schools and FET centres.
  • Kerry ETB delivers educational opportunities that are accessible, flexible in nature and are designed in consultation with the learners in over 100 community venues in Kerry.
  • Kerry ETB understands the needs of the community and voluntary sector, this value is deeply embedded in Kerry ETB and results in over 150 groups applying for Community Education provision annually.

Ciste Rochtana

Reach Fund

Tá sé mar aidhm ag an gciste Rochtana (MAEDF roimhe seo) maoiniú a chur ar fáil chun tacú le foghlaimeoirí faoi mhíbhuntáiste oideachasúil rochtain a fháil ar oideachas pobail agus páirt a ghlacadh ann. Tá sé mar aidhm aige cur le rannpháirtíocht i measc foghlaimeoirí faoi mhíbhuntáiste, go háirithe ina measc siúd atá ag tabhairt faoi chláir litearthachta agus
scileanna.

Tá fócas láidir sa chiste maidir le bonneagair dhigiteach soláthraithe oideachais
pobail a fhorbairt, lena n-áirítear gléasanna agus bogearraí a sholáthar, agus cur lena
gcumas foghlaim a sheachadadh. Dearadh an ciste go sonrach chun dul i ngleic le
neamhionannais agus chun tacú le rochtain ar oideachas pobail, agus bhí sé i gceist aige
freisin aghaidh a thabhairt ar ghníomhartha sonracha sa Straitéis Litearthachta don Saol
Aosach chun maoiniú a dhíriú ar rochtain ar theicneolaíocht agus gléasanna, chun cur le
rochtain an phobail ar acmhainní wi-fi agus leathanbhanda agus chun aghaidh a thabhairt go
díreach ar riachtanais litearthachta nach bhfuiltear ag freastal orthu.
