About Us

EQUAL Ireland Education Research & Related Services Co. Ltd is a ‘not for profit’ charitable trust trading under the name EQUAL Ireland. It was originally founded in Ireland in 2001 by IBEC, SIPTU, FÁS and Líonra – a Higher Education Network of seven third Level Colleges i.e. Athlone, Dundalk, Galway-Mayo, Letterkenny and Sligo, Institutes of Technology and the National University of Ireland, Galway.

The key objective of EQUAL Ireland is the ongoing development and delivery of innovative and flexible, accredited education and training programmes aimed particularly, but not exclusively, at those adults who, for whatever reason, missed out on earlier education and training opportunities.

EQUAL Ireland engages in research and ‘not for profit’ commercial activities which inform and support the above objective.

 

 

“We hope that this Website will give you an insight into what EQUAL Ireland is about and more importantly what we may be able to help you with in terms of your education and development and of course your employability.”  

Eddie Higgins, Executive Director EQUAL Ireland

“We cannot of course guarantee your academic success, as that will in great part depend on you, but we can guarantee to be there for you with support and advice, quality tutors and excellent learning materials! Your success is our objective”  

Nuala Keher, Academic & Research Director, EQUAL Ireland
