Always wanted to go to university, but never had the chance? Come along to the information session to find your path back into education! This session will provide information on the Unblocking Potential: Bridge over Troublesome Knowledge Course. This 6-8 week Ulster University access course will be delivered in community settings in Armagh, Banbridge and Craigavon. Funded by Armagh, Banbridge and Craigavon Council as part of their Peace IV activities, the course aims to build self confidence, develop understanding of barriers to learning and provide access to higher education. Course fees are covered by the PEACE IV Programme and the course is accredited by Ulster University.

The course will run over 6-8 weeks one day/evening per week. The course will help participants to:

  • Identify common barriers to learning and factors which make it difficult for people to return to education;
  • Gain an understanding of how early learning experiences impact upon current learning;
  • Plan and organise study time;
  • Learn how to take notes and make mind maps;
  • Develop team-working skills;
  • Gather information from a range of sources;
  • Develop writing and speaking skills to communicate effectively.

Successful participants will gain 20 credits from Ulster University, which can be used towards the Certificate in Personal & Professional Development (60 credits) and to gain entry to a number of part-time degrees at Ulster University.
