Cork Access Network

This is a new initiative established to co-ordinate efforts to tackle Educational Disadvantage in Cork City as an outcome of the  Leave No-One Behind  webinar held on December 15th 2020. 

Cork Access Network is working to enable and enhance access to learning opportunities in Cork city. We are opening up the discussion about access in Cork, to name the issues and begin working on solutions at a local level.  The group involves representatives of Cork City Council,

as a partner in Cork Learning City with Cork Education and Training Board, Munster Technological University and University College Cork.


We intend to involve a range of individuals and organisations chaired by the former president of CIT Dr. Barry O'Connor . We are working at every level across the city, with the goal of creating a positive change to engagement with Access in Cork for the benefit of all learners.


FREE Webinar and presentation by Cormac Russell on May 5th 9:30 - 12:30 

‘A Strengths Based Approach to tackling Educational Disadvantage’


Asset Based Community Development builds on the assets that are found in the community and mobilises individuals, associations, and institutions to come together to realise and develop their strengths.
