People interested in becoming teachers in the further and adult education sector and existing teachers looking to progress their career are invited to attend an Education Programmes Open Day on Saturday week, February 17th, between 10am and 1pm at the WIT Arena.
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.

Said Dr Helen Murphy, Head of the School of Lifelong Learning and Education: “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.”
