Cavan and Monaghan Education and Training Board launch a range of Virtual Events to celebrate Adult Learners’ Week 2021
The 15th annual AONTAS Adult Learners’ Festival will take place from 1st – 5th March 2021. While CMETB Adult Education Services usually encourage adults in Cavan and Monaghan to physically attend free open days, events, classes and workshops throughout the two counties, this year will look a little different as CMETB adapts to the current COVID-19 pandemic and the restrictions in place. In 2021, CMETB will run its first ever virtual Adult Learners’ Festival online.
The aim of this year’s event is to deliver a strong message of hope within Ireland’s Adult Learning sector and promote the importance of Educational Equality and Mitigating Educational Disadvantage in a time of COVID-19.
The theme of this year’s festival is “Building Back Better Together – #BetterTogether”.
Deirdre Byrne, (CMETB Adult Education Officer) said: “While we can’t come together for our usual in-person events, we are excited to deliver an exciting calendar of virtual events and opportunities for adults to engage with a taster of our services online.”
CMETB Adult Education Service is delivering a number of virtual events in the areas of Mindfulness, Flower Arranging & Gardening, Genealogy, Beauty, Cookery, Arts & Crafts, Coping with Stress, Italian Language & Culture, Exercise and Online Learning. There will also be Guidance and Information sessions from the Adult Education Guidance & Information Service. Throughout the year, CMETB Adult Education Service runs courses in Childcare, Beauty, Gardening, IT, Cookery, Business, Woodcraft, Literacy, Maths, IT, Construction, Healthcare etc on a part-time basis.
Join CMETB and get involved from 1st – 5th March.
