As well as being a social event, the visit of museums allows “outdoor" learning through practical experiences for both children and adults. According to Griffin and Symington (1998), visitors can learn in museums through: 

(a) taking responsibility for learning, 

(b) active involvement in learning, 

(c) purposeful manipulating of objects, 

(d) making links between exhibits and ideas, 

(e) sharing learning with peers and experts, 

(f) showing confidence in learning by asking questions and explaining to peers, and 

The National Adult Literacy Agency (NALA) invites tender submissions from experienced innovation design, digital learning and EdTech agencies to design, develop and support an online assessment tool for the ERASMUS+ Check-In-Take-Off (CITO) project. The online assessment tool will be used by members of the public to assess their literacy, numeracy and digital skills and will allow them to look at their readiness to learn and learning goals.

The general aim of the project is to ensure the necessary Institutional Cooperation for adult education and employment and help the adults all over Turkey to continue to live as active citizens by supporting them to acquire modern basic skills. Besides, it is aimed to increase the employability of those who want to participate in employment, but have difficulty in finding jobs themselves.

A number of community and voluntary organisations have come together, with the support of the HSE Social Inclusion Services Cork, to create a new entity called Cork Equal and Sustainable Communities Alliance (CESCA). CESCA works together to address issues of disadvantage in Cork City.

Applications are invited from groups / organisations seeking to promote social inclusion and social justice in Cork City. The key focus will be on collaborative work using once off funding which can be completed within a 12 month timeframe.
