WIT Libraries are delighted to announce a one day seminar titled 'Higher Education on your Doorstep, Bridging the Gap' on Friday 24 May 2019, in the Luke Wadding Library.
The National Forum for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning in Higher Education is the national body responsible for leading and advising on the enhancement of teaching and learning in Irish higher education.
The seminar will consist of a series of talks and workshops designed to facilitate discussion around HEI Academic Libraries’ implementation of targeted access programmes that aim to assist disadvantaged students’ transition into higher education.
The seminar will look at the Library Junior Access Programme (LJAP) an early intervention access programme running in WIT Libraries since 2014. The programme annually facilitates over fifty leaving certificate students from local schools.
