Open College Network Northern Ireland (OCN NI) has created a new Centre Learning Grants Programme worth £70k which will be open to a range of its education and training providers, including representatives from the Community and Voluntary Sector, Further Education, Private Training and Schools sectors. This is the first learner funding scheme of its kind ever launched in Northern Ireland by awarding organisation.
More than £370,000 has been invested in a new project aimed at improving the lives and employment opportunities for hundreds of women from disadvantaged areas. Women Breaking Barriers, which is funded by the Community Renewal Fund (CRF), will provide specially targeted training and education courses in 14 women’s centres across Northern Ireland.
MEAT technologists at Loughry campus, College of Agriculture, Food and Rural Enterprise (CAFRE), have successfully gained accreditation for their popular ‘Meat Skills’ course, resulting in a new enhanced qualification – the OCN NI Level 3 Award in The Principles of Meat Technology.
In a new addition to the Learning Endeavour Awards this year, each winner will not only receive the prestigious OCN Crystal Award but will also be presented with a £1,000 learning bursary. Furthermore, OCN NI can confirm that each Highly Commended participant will also receive a £500 learning bursary
