Community Education aims to address the issue of participation in formal and informal education by the most disadvantaged communities, groups and individuals in Sligo.
We aim to increase awareness of educational, recreational and cultural opportunities for children, young people and adults in Sligo.
Sligo Leader works with various groups (such as mens’ groups, parents, youth and community groups) to offer advice, encouragement and support to engage in lifelong education that promotes social inclusion and genuine community development.
A varied number of programmes have been developed with groups throughout the county including:
- English conversation classes
- Homework and study supports
- Special interest programmes
