Adult Education

And Training

Education is the kindling of a flame, not the filling of a vessel.


As part of its mission, Listowel Family Resource Centre is committed to providing adult education opportunities to all members of the community. Courses may vary from year to year depending on the needs and wishes of individuals, families and communities.

As well as providing stand-alone, non-accredited skills based courses, Listowel Family Resource Centre also collaborates with other education providers to achieve this, e.g. Kerry Flyer, Kerry Education & Training Board and other institutes as required.


So……if you would like to see us run a particular course please let us know………..
