 People looking for free courses and training to help them to get back to work, guidance counsellors, and those who support people who are unemployed to get back to work are invited to an Open Day in National Learning Network Cork as part of the Cork Lifelong Learning Festival. The open day will take place on Wednesday 25th March from 10am to 3pm at NLN’s Hollyhill training centre (across from Apple Computers - last stop on 202 bus route) with information on courses and programmes available in NLN’s centres in Hollyhill, Model Farm Road, Mallow, Midleton, Carrigaline and Penrose Wharf. Other activities on the day include craft workshops, capacitor sessions, an animal road show, an introduction to Irish Sign language (ISL) and more. There will be a short briefing on the courses (FETAC Level 3-5) every hour on the hour from 10am-2pm with opportunities to meet instructors and students throughout the day.

Those with an interest in autism and ASD are invited to attend the ‘Life after Leaving Cert for the student living with ASD’ seminar from 2.30-5pm which will outline what supports, services and opportunities are available, or that might be coming on stream, for students leaving second level education, particularly those not going on to third level.  It will also examine services that are still needed. Attached is an information notice for this event. This should be of particular interest to parents, teachers and others who are supporting students on the autistic spectrum.

National Learning Network supports adults (18-60) who have a health condition, injury, illness, mild or specific learning difficulty, mental health problem etc or who have been out of work for a long period. For more information call 021 4300144 (ext 110).
