Evidence of experience of the organisation of the women’s employment issues and experience in international co-operation

Letterkenny Institute of Technology is very well equipped with the technology to use this as a tool in its strategic planning. Increasingly the demand for this technology will begin to cause us to focus on the needs of area in this regard. Already. LYIT are at the stage of a needs analysis of Co Donegal region, have identified groups who would use the opportunity to move away from traditional type learning and move towards distance Learning. Already on campus use Intranet to enable fulltime students to access lecture notes. LYIT find on the threshold of new and challenging times when traditional modes of syllabus delivery are called into question and must adapt to future modes of syllabus delivery which will be flexible, user friendly and tailored to meet the needs of individual groups.

To share in the expertise of other countries with a long tradition of "folkschool" learning and in so doing both to learn from best international practice and to synthesise what would be relevant to our needs. To make analysis on non-formal education; experience in European Countries will allow to think about foundation of FHS in Ireland.
