Limerick and Clare Education and Training Board’s Further Education and Training Division invites applications for funding under its Community Education Grants Scheme 2021. The purpose of this scheme is to assist community and voluntary groups to deliver a range of educational activities for disadvantaged adults within their own communities in Clare.
Who Can Apply? Community and voluntary groups who are involved in the provision of educational activities for specified adult target groups. The grants provided are to enable disadvantaged adults to avail of community education at minimal or no cost. Therefore, priority will be given to groups in disadvantaged areas, projects aimed at specially disadvantaged groups, educational activities that lead to progression of the individual and the group, and also education that has national accreditation. Activities exclusively involving children and school-going teenagers are
ineligible under this scheme.
Funding: Funding will be made available in the form of tuition hours and tutors will be paid directly by Limerick and Clare Education and Training Board. Groups are required to support the online registration of learners through FETCHcourses.ie, to include progression options for learners and course outline forms for each programme. Funding is dependent on approval by SOLAS to Limerick and Clare Education and Training Board.
