Adult and Community Education Programme

Coláiste Íde has a commitment to the provision of educational opportunities to meet local needs.

Through developing links with local Community Groups we provide tuition and funding for a wide range of Adult/Community Education Courses within the community.

Courses are available in 30 venues throughout Finglas with up to a thousand participants. These venues include Parents Rooms in local schools, Family Resource Centres, Health Care Day Centres, Rehabilitation Projects, Centres for Older People, Disability Centres and Community Development Projects. 

Activities range from Hobby and Leisure to Personal Development, Parenting and Accredited Computer and Childcare Courses and Basic Education.
