The Adult Education Programme for Spring 2013 is now closed.
The Adult Edcuation Programme has commenced in Cavan Institute and online applications are now closed for this term.
The underlying theme of the courses on offer in the 2012/2013 programme is the provision of opportunities to everyone who wishes to pursue personal and career development goals. In the Government publication - Learning for Life: White Paper on Adult Education the role played by the provision of lifelong learning is clearly acknowledged.
The 2012/2013 range of part-time evening courses is Cavan Institute's response to ensuring the needs of the wider community are met by providing quality courses at times suitable to learners in their own community. Education is a fundamental cornerstone for growth in Cavan and the availability of these courses will continue to ensure the
successful development and growth of the region. Part-time study is an increasingly popular option for those wishing to obtain certified skills that are nationally and internationally recognized.
As a provider of quality assured courses Cavan Institute caters for all interests including those who are seeking higher education opportunities close to home as well as for those currently in employment who are now looking to enhance their career by up-grading their qualifications. The courses on offer provide an opportunity for continuous professional development, while enrolments on other courses may be motivated more by personal interest and a desire for self-development. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to phone or call into us and we will assist you in
whatever way we can.
Finally may I wish you success and enjoyment in your studies.

Director Cavan Institute
