An open day for people working in or interested in education is taking place at Waterford Institute of Technology today.
The event at the WIT Arena runs until 1.00pm. It’s for people interested in becoming teachers in the further and adult education sector as well as teachers looking to progress their career.
WIT’s School of Lifelong Learning and Education offers the BA (Hons) in Teaching and Learning in Further Education and Postgraduate Diploma in Teaching and Learning in Further Education. Both programmes have Teaching Council recognition for teachers working or wishing to work in Further Education.
As well as a suite of undergraduate programmes in Adult Education, Adult Literacy and Community Education and Development, the School offers the popular MA in Management in Education aimed at aspiring School Principals and Leaders in Education.
Dr Helen Murphy, Head of the School of Lifelong Learning and Education, says “the open day is for anyone working in or interested in education. It is an opportunity to come along to find out which programmes (from NFQ Level 6 up to NFQ Level 9) can help people reach their personal or professional development goals. Our programmes are flexible, responsive and connect teaching with practice. We have been working with adult learners for over 30 years and have a long history of supporting adult learners to balance their studies and other commitments.”
WIT's Department of Education’s portfolio of programmes spans from NFQ level 6 to 9. Learn more at our Education Programmes Open Day on Saturday 17 February @ArenaWit #StudyatWIT https://t.co/uWYqjyuvWY
