As we enjoy 10 years of DDLETB this week, here’s another reason to celebrate.
DDLETB Adult Education Service South West and the Air Corps celebrate QQI achievements and the end of a project!
Seven Air Corps personnel received their QQI certificates at a celebration event in head office on 21st February 2023. The group were the third and final group to take part in the Tobar RPL project here in DDLETB.
Tobar was a national project in the recognition of prior learning involving the Defence Forces and 10 ETBs. It set out to provide a pathway to potential certification for DF staff members who had extensive on-the-job learning and experience but not the accreditation for it. The Adult Education Service in Lucan partnered with the Air Corps to facilitate staff in their RPL applications, with support from the QA Unit.
DDLETB congratulates the participants on their achievements. The project has provided valuable learning to inform RPL policy and practice in DDLETB.
