Event Description

EDIC Report on Donegal ETB Education & Training Fair – 20.01.2016.
EDIC Donegal and Gaeltacht were invited to attend a Further Education & Training Fair that was organised by Donegal ETB on Wednesday 20th January 2016, in the Mount Errigal Hotel, Letterkenny. Library staff members Lorraine Burke and Marianne Lynch attended & manned the EDIC stand. We took along our EDIC pop up and leaflets on a variety of EU themes that would be useful to young people. These included general information on mobility and European consumer rights as well as more specialised information on training, further education, EVS and employment for young people throughout Europe. We also distributed EDIC pens, key fobs and bags.
There were around 50 service providers there on the day, including many colleges, the Open University, An Gardaí Siochána, the Irish Army and DLDC (Donegal Local Development Company). Approximately three hundred people attended the fair throughout the day.
We also had a selection of books relevant to the Fair – writing CVs, Interview Skills, Careers, Stress Management etc. – to give people an idea of what books are available in our Libraries.
It was a very busy day, with a constant stream of visitors. We received great feedback and this our presence at this event was very worth while.
