'Learning Without Limits'
Celebrating the work of the Trinity Centre for People with Intellectual Disabilities
The Trinity Centre for People with Intellectual Disabilities and Rethink Ireland are pleased to invite you to an exciting event that will be taking place in October 2023.
When: Friday 27th October 2023 - 9:30 - 13:30
Where: Trinity Business School, Trinity College Dublin, 182 Pearse Street, Dublin 2, DO2 F6N2
Join us as we share the evolution of the centre and our course. Witness what the path to a truly inclusive college experience looks like, and hear from our TCPID students and graduates as they share their experiences and perspectives on their success in education and employment.
Over the past 20 years, Trinity College has been a leader in the field of inclusive education. Developing from an initial pilot course in 2004, the Trinity Centre for People with Intellectual Disabilities has evolved to become a national and international best practice leader, creating a model of education that allows students to fulfil their potential through their academic, work placement and college life experience.
Following registration and an opportunity to connect over teas and coffees, we will have a welcoming address and speeches from our special guests, before we launch into three thematic conversation salons hosted by our TCPID students and graduates on the subjects of the academic experience, the college life experience, and the pathways to opportunity following college.
We will then reconvene to share our learnings from the morning, and reflect on the actions needed to grow the opportunities for inclusive higher education across the country and to address the barriers that exist for the young people now and in the future.
We hope you will join us for this celebration and for a unique opportunity to hear how together we can create a truly inclusive higher education experience that allows all students to achieve their potential.
This event is supported by Rethink Ireland through their Growth Fund.
