It’s been a tough year for staff and learners at Liberties Training Centre. In mid-March 2020, we closed our doors and moved our operations online due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It was a huge challenge for us, as it has been for all educational organisations, and we didn’t have much time to prepare.

We rose to the challenge and learned new ways of teaching through online delivery. We’ve had some fun over the lockdown, hosting a Kahoot quiz for our learners and a photography competition, “My 5km” on Instagram. They’ve helped us build a sense of online community. Even our youth committee continued their work online, contributing to the development of our new strategy. You can read more about our 2020 online learning experience in the 12th issue of the European Social Fund’s Newsletter and the final edition under the Programme for Employability, Inclusion and Learning 2014-2020.

We were able to reopen our doors, providing a blended learning programme from September until Christmas, returning fully online for the 2021 lockdown. Thankfully, we’re back to more-or-less normal operations, since May 2021 and we’re loving being back together.
