ROSCOMMON LEADER PARTNERSHIP and EQUAL Ireland, the adult education people, have joined together to provide you with a unique local education opportunity. The subjects we will be working through include an Introduction to Humanities which will focus on Community Development; An introduction to Enterprise Development that considers starting your own business, business models, funding sources etc. and Everyday Numbers which looks at how we use numbers in everyday life, whether to pay bills, measure things, calculate benefit entitlement, do budgets, work out times and distances all the everyday stuff of numbers and ordinary life.
