CEEDS and Covid-19
The unprecedented Covid-19 pandemic caused severe disruptions to our community support services i.e., Training/education provision, local access to internet facilities, ICDL/ECDL testing facility, social welfare/welfare rights information service and jobseeker support services.
In spite of these restrictions, CEEDS was one of the first Community-based Training Centers in the entire region to reopen our doors and recommence Classroom-based training delivery in June 2020. CEEDS was the only such Community-based Centre in the Clondalkin area to deliver any form of in-house, tutor-led training during this period, a remarkable achievement for such small Organization.
CEEDS was one of only a handful of ICDL/ECDL Examination facilities in the Country to operate during the pandemic, allowing us to continue providing an essential educational service throughout the Covid-19.
In September 2021 we resumed our Classroom-based Adult education and training services, which have been the core of our service offerings for almost 30 years. CEEDS has stringent safety systems in place to prevent/control the spread of Covid-19 at our facility.
Despite the challenges we have faced, our Doors have remained open throughout the pandemic, providing much needed support services to the communities of North Clondalkin and beyond.
Our brand New Computers for Beginners training Course is the first of it’s kind in the Clondalkin area since the pandemic. This Free training Course aims to provide essential digital skills education to the people within our community who have been digitally and educationally marginalized due to Covid-19, providing them with fundamental Computer skills for the new digital landscape.
CEEDS – Supporting a charitable cause in Ethiopia
In 2018 CEEDS donated over 50 Computers and Monitor Screens, Keyboards, Mice etc. to a Global I.T charity donation program. Our PC’s have found their new home in a School in Ethiopia, providing badly needed technical resources to an underprivileged region.
