“Our FETAC Level 1 courses are designed to assist people in developing the skills they need to do things for themselves on a day to day basis. The Shopping module supports people to develop their skills in making choices and expressing what they want. Anne, who you see in the photograph, has really benefited from her work on the course. She has got more verbal and is more confident in voicing her wishes and opinions; she smiles a lot when she decides and seems very pleased with herself.” - Frieda Bent, staff member.
Two of the people who use our service got Major awards at FETAC level 3.
Gavin Morris said “I will be able to show employers what I have done and tell them that I have this and this”.
Michelle Melia said “I think all of this will help me find my dream job which is to work in an office."
Gavin and Michelle would like to thank everyone who supported them to get their level 3 Major awards
KARE is involved in the Inclusive Learning Initiative in National University of Ireland, Maynooth (NUIM). This is a collaborative project between NUIM and various agencies providing supports to people with an intellectual disability. The initiative is supporting 5 students with intellectual disability to experience university life and the challenge of learning in the university community. These students attend lectures and tutorials and taking part in social activities just like all other students do. Their assignments are assessed by the university and they graded according to their own level of work.
Ross Connolly is one of these students - "I am a 1st year student in NUIM, I am studying Community and Youth work. I really like it. The people in my class are great; they are really helpful if anyone is stuck with any work, we come together as a family, it is great to have a class like that. I am so happy to have the chance to be in college."
