An information session for a new third level education Pathways Programme coming to Ardee later this year takes place next Wednesday – and there are still places available to come along.
The session will be held at the Dee Hub on Market Street in Ardee on Wednesday May 17th between 10.30am and 12.30pm. The information sessions will give the programme leaders the opportunity to provide participants with an overview of the three subject areas for this programme – which will be begin in September.
You can register your interest in attending the information session now and spaces are very limited so Pathways encourage those interested to register as soon as possible to avoid disappointment. You can call Jacqui Ward on 087 746 2507 or e-mail here [email protected]
The programme itself will consist of one session a week held at the Dee Hub on Market Street and will commence on Wednesday September 6th, running until Wednesday December 13th. Pathways will also run in Dundalk (Louth County Library, Tuesdays) and Drogheda (Louth County Library, Thursdays) for the same period. Each session will last two hours – from 10.30am to 12.30pm.
There are 75 spaces available across the programme in the three towns – with 25 spots in Ardee, Dundalk and Drogheda each.
The Pathways programe, run in conjunction with the Louth Leader Partnership and Dundalk Institute of Technology, is a 14 week programme designed to help break down barriers that may be preventing adults from accessing Third Level Education.
The programme provides participants with the opportunity to sample facilitated discussions and debates of Third Level Education without having to worry about exams, assignments or presentations. Topics include Community Development and Active Citizenship, Creative Arts and Marketing. Participants of the programme will also receive ongoing support and career guidance advice.
The only entry requirements for the programme are a primary level education and fitting the 18-55 age criteria. Pathways is free to all participants.
