HOW? WHERE? WHEN?

Programme Details

With our organisation’s mission always in mind, we strive to find new strategies for dealing with old challenges especially Time, Cost, Travel, Motivation and Support. 

We save you time and travel by delivering our programmes locally throughout Ireland and on a part time basis.

As we are ‘not for profit’ we keep cost to an absolute minimum.

EQUAL Ireland is specialised in adult learning and fully appreciates the fact that people live busy lives as well as having their learning ambitions.

In particular we understand that a return to learning can be a daunting undertaking and that from time to time a person will need personal encouragement, help and support, which we are always ready, willing and able to provide.
