This service facilitates and supports community based learning in locations throughout the City and County. Its aim is to encourage adults to return to learning in their own local communities. Subjects include personal development, art, sign language, crafts, computer skills and others as identified by the community or group themselves. Classes generally run for 6 to 10 weeks and the Kilkenny and Carlow Education and Training Board assists funding a tutor or facilitator. A minimum number of participants is required to begin a class.
