Returning to Education-My Story

February 29, 2016

WWETB and Waterford City & County Libraries come together to celebrate Adult Learning Week 2016

Returning to Education-My Story… is an exhibition of adult learners’ stories which took place in Central Library Waterford from Monday, 22nd February 2016. John O’Leary, The Deputy Mayor of Waterford, officially launched the Return to Education Exhibition on Friday, 26th February 2016 at 12pm in Central Library.  Waterford City and County Library Services and Waterford Wexford ETB congratulate and thank all the adult learners that contributed to this exhibition by sharing the gift of their story.

In this inspiring Exhibition, adult learners attending classes in Waterford Education and Training Board Centres tell the human story of returning to education. These are life stories of hope, telling the people of Waterford that it is never too late to learn and that learning brings with it many benefits.

All over Waterford, many people are returning to education and improving their reading, writing, and maths skills. They are people who want to catch up on what they missed at school, parents who want to help children with their homework and those who would simply like to write a letter home.  Whatever the reason for going back to learning, the benefits are always the same.  Not only do people improve their old skills, but they also gain the confidence to learn new ones.

So why not visit Central Library and read these inspirational stories. To start your own return to education story contact your Local ETB Centre where they will help you to take the first step.
