"The key learning for me was learning about the importance of voting, my rights and how to make positive change." Quote from participant

This project updated a voter education programme created by the Vincetian Partnership for Social Justice. Updates include the development of teaching methods for voter education and more training for adult literacy tutors. This project also delivered pilot courses to adult learners throughout Dublin.

16 tutors attended training and received copies of a new teaching and learning resource. 56 learners took part in pilot voter education courses in various Adult Education Service centres. A Voters Voices conference helped raise awareness about the importance of voter education.

This project was very successful. It inspired people with unmet literacy needs to learn more about their rights, and especially the right to vote.  

“I learned so much on this training from my peers sharing their teaching strategies. It also gave me an opportunity to drill deeper into the voting system and the importance of encouraging all students to vote and have their say in society.” Quote from participant

This project is the result of a collaboration between City of Dublin Education and Training Board (CDETB) and Dublin Adult Learning Centre.
