National Learning Network is holding an Open Day on 25th March from 10am to 3pm at our Hollyhill training centre (across from Apple Computers) as part of the Cork Lifelong Learning Festival. This will give an opportunity for anyone who might support people regarding their education, training and employment or potential learners to come and learn about the training programmes that are delivered at our training centres at Hollyhill, Model Farm Road, Mallow, Midleton, Carrigaline and Penrose Wharf. As well as giving information on our training programmes there are also a range of activities taking place at the centre during the day. These include craft workshops, capacitor sessions, an animal road  show, an introduction to Irish Sign language (ISL) and more. Attached is an information notice listing these activities. During the afternoon, from 2.30 to 5pm, we are also holding a seminar titled ‘Life after Leaving Cert for the student living with ASD’This seminar 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. You can get further information on any aspect of the day or on our services generally by phoning our administration office at 021 4300144 (extension 110).
