Introduction
The first ever five year strategy for Further Education and Training was launched in May of
this year. The strategy sets out a vision for the development of a high quality further
education and training service over the next five years. Five goals have been set: Skills for
the Economy, Active Inclusion, Quality Provision, Integrated Planning and Funding and
Standing of FET. You can read the document at www.education.ie/en/ Publications/PolicyReports/Further-Education-and-Training-Strategy-2014-2019.pdf
Our Adult Learner Festival in February was very well attended and much networking
ensued. Well done to everyone who participated.The theme of the event was fundraising.
As a follow up we have included some Top Tips on writing a funding application on page 12.
We have several new projects planned for the coming term. Those intent on making
their ideas for a social enterprise a reality will be interested in our Enterprising Communities
course to be held in the format of nine one day workshops between September and April.
Turn to page 4 and 9 for more details.
An exciting new venture to establish a Community Art and Crafts Shed based in Naas
library will start in September. More details on page 2 and 9.
We look forward to meeting your group in the coming months.

Would you like to increase your Art or

We have run numerous Community
Art and Craft courses throughout the
county and identified the need for a
progression route for participants, so
they can continue to develop their
skills in a group environment. In
spring 2014, we ran a short pilot
course in the ABCE Centre, Naas,
over a 10 week period. The participants came together to share and
learn new skills and exhibit their
work at the end of the course, in Naas
Library. As a result of this process,
Naas Library has kindly offered a
space for 2 hours a week, for a group
to meet and share their ideas.

Enterprising Communities is an
exciting new programme being
offered by the Community Education
Service of KWETB. It will provide
participants with an understanding of
the
concepts
behind
Social
Enterprise and showcase examples of
how communities are putting these
ideas into practice. The programme
will also encourage participants to
develop their own ideas for community based initiatives and actively
support putting them into practice.
This will be achieved through making the workshops as practically
focused as possible but also through
the provision of small group mentoring with participants at different
stages during the programme. Guest
speakers and a study visit will also
form part of the programme.
The programme will be offered in
Blessington Further Education
Centre as a series of 9 Monday workshops spread over the Autumn 14 and
Spring 15 terms. The first session
will take place on Monday,
September 29th at 10am-4.30pm.
The course will be of interest to community groups, individuals and anyone who wishes to encourage positive change in their community.

Music for Men
When I started this programme I was
honestly skeptical about what could
be done in such a short period of
time. I was pleasantly surprised by
what I learned. I learned all about
the different aspects of music as
well as how to play the guitar. I
found this very interesting. I really
felt a sense of achievement and pride
and thoroughly enjoyed the banter
and craic with my fellow comrades.

Community Effect
Course
“Community” is a warm word, especially when prefaced by “Our”. It
denotes a sense of belonging, a sense
of pride. “Effect” has several meanings – result, influence, actions, reaction. It can be both positive and neg10
in depth, reinforced through role play
and possible solutions / improvements suggested.
At the Taster Night, 9 weeks
seemed a long stretch of time, a lot of
effort and huge commitment but
when we were awarded our
Certificates on the final night, the
occasion was tinged with sadness.
We all agreed we would miss coming
to the course. Each and every one of
us enjoyed it. We were motivated,
energised and more aware of the
needs and problems in our area. It
was Top Class!

merged both words and based a 10
week course on their combined
meanings. The results were inspirational!
On a bitterly cold February night,
members of Timahoe Active Age
Group braved the weather to meet
with facilitator, Deirdre Gallagher,
for a “Taster Night” – an overview
of the “Community Effect” course.
Ten of our members committed to
attend. Deirdre’s unique teaching
methods guided us towards a deeper
understanding of ourselves, our
potential, our individual strengths
and how we can use our talents to
improve our own group and our community.
Her mentoring strategies were
thought-provoking and informative.
As the weeks progressed, issues
raised shaped the content of the
course, so the content was tailored to
suit our unique community. Using a
spiral approach, we built and
expanded on the learning of previous
weeks, covering a wide range of relevant topics – local, national and
global – discrimination, exclusion,
isolation, financial concerns, safety
and security. These were discussed

community groups so it makes sense
to make the best application possible.
The following are some tips drawn
from several sources with some
resources at the end for further reading. If your group needs help with a
funding application please contact
us.
1 Forget about the money! (At
least initially…)
First be clear about what need you
have identified and what outcome
you want to achieve.
2 Do your research thoroughly…
Read the guidelines carefully. Find
out what kinds of projects this funder
has funded in the past and look at
their website. If they encourage personal contact a phone call can clarify
whether your idea has a chance of
being approved, saving time in
preparing an application that has
little chance of success.
3 Remember – �People give to
people…’
It is important to build a relationship
with the funder. Is it possible to have
a meeting to discuss the application?
Acknowledge the funder in any
printed material. Report back on how

Harvest Centre as well as members
from the wider community.
The course was a great success for
all. Whilst all the participants were a
little nervous starting the course,
they soon became very comfortable
and developed a great rapport
amongst themselves and the tutor.
They explained that there was a lot of
sharing of flowers and branches,
teamwork – helping one another to
make beautiful arrangements, with
lots to learn in a lovely relaxed
atmosphere. The highlight for the
group was designing and arranging
planters for the recently opened
Teach Tearmain in Kildare Town.
Along with the tutor they presented the planters to the Teach Tearmain
team. The group were given a tour of
this new facility for which they were
very grateful. Participants said that it
was a wonderful experience to be
part of a project that involved doing
something for another Community
Group and wish the team in Teach
Tearmain every success for the
future.

are funded is that the funders are
convinced that the group is organised, has a good track record and is
an appropriate organisation to carry
out the proposed project. Give a clear
description of the aims of your
group.
5 Clearly define the need you are
seeking to meet
Explain the need in clear convincing
terms and outline how you propose
to address it. Support with statistical
evidence and your groups successes
in similar projects in the past. Show
how your project meets the funder’s
objectives. Include how you will
evaluate the project.
6 Avoid jargon and waffle!
Say what you need to but keep it as
short as possible. Where there isn’t a
form to fill in, use a logical structure
- move from the general to the specific and avoid repetition.
7 Spend some time on the budget
Show value for money but be realistic. Use appropriate hourly rates; get
quotes from suppliers or venues in
the case of rent. Make sure your
budget adds up.

Mindfulness for Men
I found this six week introductory
course an opportunity to learn about
the broad principles of mindfulness
and satisfy my curiosity if there was
something in it for me. Confined to
men, this had the advantage of providing a mutually supportive forum
of like-minded participants, yet each
person came with unique challenges
and different life experiences
Our facilitator, Joanna, provided a
relaxing atmosphere with lighted
candle and use of essential oils. She
13
Carbury Community
Ladies Group
encouraged everyone to speak about
personal feelings within an environment of solidarity and confidentiality. I felt the interaction within the
group on the whole was good with
feelings and opinions voiced on the
issues raised. She empowered us to
deal with life’s challenges in a proactive way without judgement, with the
emphasis on a positive response
rather than reacting emotionally.
The key to mindfulness meditation
was the “exercises” and in particular
the abdominal breathing to gain a
sense of personal awareness and
focus in the present. Another important dimension, it doesn’t have to be
time consuming, but can be incorporated into one’s daily activities.
It’s not a panacea for the stresses
of life, yet it is a practical tool to use
in a very personal way. Much
depends on how much one puts into
it. This “introductory” course was an
invitation to read more depending on
each person’s interest, circumstances
and motivation.
Let’s not forget the tea break,
which was very welcome and appreciated. It provided an additional
opportunity to get to know each other
some more by mixing socially.

Carbury Community Ladies Group
have just completed a 17 hour First
Aid course, thanks to KWETB for
funding this. The course was delivered to us by Bernie Miggin helped
by Derick O’ Brien in a very knowledgeable and in-depth manner that
was understood by all. Their knowledge and teaching ability was second
to none. As a group we helped and
encouraged each other. We learned
step by step what action to take in an
emergency and in the proper order.
We now know why all the questions
are asked when you ring an emergency number. Knowledge is a wonderful tool. This course is probably if
not the most important course you
will ever do. It covers: Burns,
Choking, Seizures, Strokes and Heart
attacks to mention but a few. Our
group recommends that this course
be made available to all groups big
and small. It benefits all ages from
infants to senior citizens.
Just because you do the course
doesn’t mean you have to use it but
wouldn’t it be nice to be able to help
someone someday if the need arises?

They learnt how to do many tasks
on-line such as taxing the car and

course has given me greater belief in
myself – that I �can do’ and now
nothing is impossible”.
The group were delighted to run
the course in Teach Diarmada with
its comfortable facilities and friendly
team of workers. In this spacious,

prospect of even touching the computer, the tutor soon had them
