Learning Limerick has announced a further commitment to advancing Limerick’s progress as a Learning Region.

A partners’ Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed on Thursday (07 March 2019) and this agreement is a strong statement of their intent and support for the Learning City-Region initiative for Limerick. 

All of the organisations involved in Learning Limerick work together to promote awareness of the importance of lifelong learning, and to influence education and skills policy on a local, national and international level.  They also seek to position learning at the centre of development planning in the Limerick region in all communities, sectors and settings.

Learning Limerick is a member of the UNESCO Global Network of Learning Cities, which is an international policy-oriented network providing inspiration, know-how and best practice.  Signing the MoU are the six core funding partners:

Limerick City and County Council

Limerick and Clare Education and Training Board

PAUL Partnership

University of Limerick

Mary Immaculate College

Limerick Institute of Technology
