The high-level education conference “Contemporary Approaches to Learning and Teaching” starts today in Tallinn where nearly 200 European education experts discuss the alignment of education systems with the needs of our evolving society.

Cambridge University Students’ Union Shadowing Scheme, aimed at Mature Students 21 and older, is an opportunity for those unsure about university to try it out before applying. If you’re on an Access to HE course or studying A-Levels later on in life, the Shadowing Scheme is perfect for you! Meals and accommodation are covered by Cambridge and travel can be reimbursed on a needs basis. Applications are open from 24th August until 15th October 2017.

There are currently almost 50,000 adults attending literacy courses in Ireland.
