Access to Education

This initiative is part of a long term strategy by Sligo LEADER Partnership Company to promote access by specific target groups to third level and further education. Based on a model in Dublin’s Institute of Technology, a pilot project has been devised and funding secured through the Dormant Accounts Fund to run The Community Steps Programme. This project works in conjunction with the Department of Education and Science’s led- Education Working Group, which promotes the access to education and the retention in formal education of specific target groups.
