A programme of events for Kerry has been launched by AONTAS, the National Adult Learning Organisation, set to take place during the tenth annual Adult Learners’ Festival. The events – running from February 22nd to 27th – include a mature student peer mentor lunch at IT Tralee. A talk for adult literacy learners – regarding the historical records of 1916 in Killarney and Killorglin – will be hosted in Killarney Library. An awards ceremony will honour a group of Traveller women on their completion of the Experiential Taster Programme in cookery. Pre-election, AONTAS issued a call for all adults to have equal access to education that meets their needs and is calling on adult learners in Kerry to raise this with local candidates.
