Inspiration in Education – Cork’s Pioneering Model of Learner-led Community Education 

In 2014, propelled by concerns held by member groups of the City Centre Network that Community Education in Cork City was facing threats, work was done to compile literature and submissions that evidenced the benefits of community based adult education, particularly the BTEI, Partnership and Adult Literacy and Community Education (ALCE) streams. A Working Paper was prepared by the Cork City-Centre/Citywide Community Education Network based on submissions received from member groups of the Cork City Centre/Citywide Community Education Network (The Social Health Education Project; The Lantern Community Project; The Good Shepherd Services; The Basement Resource Centre; Altrusa; Welcome English; Cork Simon Community).
