The Advantage course (an accredited training course on age issues) won the Ulster Award at the AONTAS Star Awards ceremony on Monday 22 February in The Berkeley Hotel, Dublin.
Advantage Training is a partnership between Age NI, Advice NI and A2B (Access to Benefits) and was developed to improve the skills and knowledge base of advisors on age related issues so they can better inform older people and groups in Northern Ireland to access their rights and entitlements.
AONTAS (The National Adult Learning Organisation STAR Awards 2011) is part of the fifth annual Adult Learners' Festival set up to recognise and celebrate collaborative work undertaken by adult learning initiatives in our communities.
Presenting the awards were Sean Haughey TD (Minister for Lifelong Learning) and Michael D Higgins. For more information and photos visit:
