A time for celebration at Limerick's National Learning Network
MORE than 40 students of National Learning Network (NLN) in Limerick have been honoured for their inspirational efforts in achieving a range of qualifications.
The certification ceremony was attended by Minister of State Patrick O’Donovan who praised the commitment and enthusiasm shown by students studying NLN courses.
The students who attend the National Learning Network, which is a division of the Rehab Group, completed a training programme to develop their personal, social and work related skills, that helps them achieve greater levels of independence and community integration.
Kevin Hanly, who was a student on the Rehabilitative Training programme, spoke proudly of his achievement in completing the course.
“The programme provided me with the confidence and opportunities to try new things and challenge myself in all areas of my life such as travelling independently, completing part-time evening courses, becoming involved in my community and identifying my strengths and interests.”
“The experience I gained and the skills I developed while on the rehabilitative training programme helped to provide a solid foundation in making decisions about my future and moving on to college,” he explained.
Minister O’Donovan said the students should be very proud of their achievements during the course of the programme.
“It is a privilege to present you with your awards and to acknowledge your accomplishments during your time here in National Learning Network, Limerick. What you have learned over your time here will stand to you in the future as you continue in education or enter employment, or simply to live your life as a valued member of the community”
