EU Project - Dublin March 2019

The second meeting of our EU Project ‘Back to Learning’ was hosted by BARWS in CDETB Ballymun Adult Education Centre on 5/6th March 2019. The project partners had tutor presentations on assessment for accredited and unaccredited groups and on themed learning such as BARWS horticulture programme. There was also a visit to Ballymun STAR project, where STAR participants spoke of learning programmes delivered by BARWS tutors.

The project partners had the opportunity to hear, first-hand, our learners’ experience of returning to adult basic education when they met with more than thirty BARWS learners for a tea and chat session.

The cultural element of the visit to Dublin was a tour of the Rediscovery Centre in Ballymun and later, an evening tour of Dublin City Centre led by BARWS history tutor Regina. We were delighted to receive very positive feedback for the Dublin meeting from the project partners.
