Join the campaign to lobby for an adult learner seat on the Education and Training Boards (ETBs)

27 Jun 2012

NALA believe that having an adult learner representative on the ETBs would further enhance the modernisation of the governance structures of education and training, add to the quality assurance of the ETBs and make them more inclusive of the citizen and more learner centrered.

Learners’ knowledge and skills are vital for the effective organisation of adult education provision and it is their right to be actively involved at all levels, including governance, planning, development and evaluation of their learning experience. 
The NALA Executive believes it is essential for adult learners to have a designated place on the ETBs and decided to actively seek a change in the draft legislation to specifically include a distinctive and dedicated adult learner perspective on the boards.
