CDETB Adult Education Service celebrates Adult Learners’ Festival 2017

The CDETB Adult Education Service (Parnell Square) brought together 145 students and staff to participate in an event to celebrate the Power and Joy of Learning as part of the AONTAS 2017 Adult Learner’s Festival. The event, which took place on Thursday 9th March in the Teacher’s Club, successfully united people of all ages, nationalities and learning experiences. The speakers included Professor Ted Fleming, Una Buckley, and students Donna, Carl, James and Maureen who all spoke so eloquently about the Power and Joy of Learning.
