As part of the fourth annual College Awareness Week next week, Ardee Library will host a Adult Education Guidance and Information Service session, which will be open to all.

The information drop-in session, held by the Louth Meath Education & Training Board, will take place on Thursday November 23rd between 10.30am and 12.30pm at Ardee Library.


The College Aware campaign is a nationwide programme to promote the benefits and wide range of education and training opportunities open to adults. It aims to encourage people of all ages to consider further education as part of their future.

Visitors will be able to discover your options as an adult learner, learn how and when to apply to colleges and find out what supports are available.

Co-ordinators from LMETB’s Adult Education Guidance and Information Service will be on hand in Ardee Library to inform people about courses they can apply for, provide help with the application process and advise on progression routes.

The inaugural College Awareness Week (CAW) in 2014, the first of its kind in Ireland, was a runaway success with over 350 events in locations including schools, higher educational institutes, community centres and libraries.

Last year’s campaign saw over 1,200 events and approximately 125,000 participants. CAW 2017 is expected to bring even more participants on board, with events being held in locations from Malin Head to Mizen Head.

For more information, you can contact [email protected] or visit the CAW website www.collegeaware.ie.

Events are also taking place across the week (Monday November 20th to Friday November 24th) in Drogheda, Dundalk and Bettystown. A full list of events is available here.
