What is Community Education?
|Community education is outside the formal education sector, with the aims of enhancing learning, fostering empowerment and contributing to civic society. It is located in communities which and the content of the courses are based on the needs of individuals and communities. The community education service facilitates and supports community based adult education classes for a range of groups through the provision of tutor hours in Tipperary. Community education groups and voluntary organisations are invited to apply for this service every November. Priority is given to community education courses that engage individuals and groups who experience particular barriers to participation in adult learning and increase participation in community activity.
What is the Tipperary Education & Training Board Digital Citizenship Programme?
The Digital Citizenship Programme in Tipperary ETB is part of this strategy and the overall aim is to address the digital divide in our communities.
