Community Outreach Programme

This workstream focuses on expanding on the pathways available for adults from under-represented groups to access Higher Education. 

This includes:

  • Development of cross-sector community events to showcase learning opportunities among different providers and allow learners to ‘join the dots’ among education sectors, and provide a stepped approach to learning opportunities.
  • A structured Community Outreach Taster Programme, developed with community partners, to integrate and add benefit to existing community-based learning opportunities and support learners to gain an understanding of the Higher Education and the pathways available.
  • Expansion of short Refresher Courses for prospective students across TU Dublin, focusing on developing confidence in key skills needed for successful transition to Higher Education.
