What is the Learning Ambassador Initiative?

A way for YOU to get involved in promoting lifelong learning!

The Learning Ambassadors are Limerick people from all different walks of life who aim to promote, develop and celebrate learning throughout Limerick City, County and beyond, and anyone can be one.

They encourage others to take part in lifelong learning by telling their personal education stories. By showing their unique and diverse pathways through education, they can help others to see learning as not only beneficial, but accessible to all.
