The Education Department’s core aim is to work with all people and groups engaging with education and learning. The Education Team works through the community development principles of equality, empowerment and participation.

Advice and Guidance

The Education Department provides an excellent advice and guidance service. We work with groups and also on a one-to-one basis to help individuals explore their options for education and learning. Our education services are led by the people we work with and our objective is to ensure that people gain access to education which is suitable and relevant to their learning goals. We also provide the most up-to-date information regarding funding and financial supports for education.

Working With Schools and Local Groups

The education team works with both established educational services in Dublin 10 and agencies wishing to work in the area. Fundamental to the work of the education department is the expansion of activities with early years’ services, schools, training centres, further and higher education institutes and a broad range of youth and community services. Developing interagency approaches to tackling educational inequality is a cornerstone of the work undertaken. Through the Education Task Force, the Dublin 10 learning community has an open point of access to all groups or organisations seeking to collaborate with the wider community.

Access To Further Education

A broad range of activities and services are provided by the education team, all of which respond directly to accessing further or higher education. From one-to-one guidance and advice for prospective students to delivering college preparation and study skills workshops, the education team responds in a number of ways to meet the needs of those wishing to progress their education qualifications. Our experience of working with people to achieve their education goals has shown us that when people participate on courses they want, the outcome is always positive.

Adult and Community Education

The Education Department is committed to Life Long Learning and appreciate the importance of educational courses which are not focused on the qualification but the learning experience of all those involved. Working in conjunction with the Community Development team, the Partnership is working towards a Community Education Strategy for the Dublin 10 area.
