Mission Statement LIT prepares learners for fulfilling and challenging futures, fostering the professional, intellectual, social, cultural and personal development of the individual. The hallmark of our educational philosophy is active learning through a fusion of theory and practice. We provide third and fourth level education, training and research, playing a pivotal role in the economic and socio-cultural development of our region
Lifelong Learning at LIT Adult & Continuing Education (ACE) Our programme offers opportunities to people from a variety of backgrounds who wish to pursue personal and career development goals through the potential of higher education on a part-time basis. LIT offers opportunities to part time students to undertake a number of full-time courses on a part-time basis and also is able to offer special courses for specific groups of company employees that can be tailored to company needs.
LIT Strategic Plan 2006-2010 Objective 1.2 –We will offer students coherent, unified, modular programmes of study that are student-centred and allow students to take individual options around defined core disciplines. By offering student choice, these progammes of study will address economic and industry requirements and also address wider education matched to learner profiles and needs. Objective 2.3 –We will engage in adaptation and customising of our existing programmes for distinct new market segments, whenever there is perceived to be sustainable demand from non-traditional learners.
Objective 2.9 –LIT will, together with other third-level providers, embark upon the development of a flexible and transparent regional higher education framework of academic programmes, research, adult and continuing education. This will help to position Limerick as a Leading centre of Learning both nationally and internationally, and a magnet of attraction for socio-economic and cultural development. Objective 3.2 –We will develop programmes that better integrate study and working in the Work-based Learning model. This should enable the work-based learner to attain accreditation of learning and experience from the workplace.
Objective 6.1 –The management structure, both academic and non-academic, will reflect clear hierarchical and functional lines, with manageable spans of control, logical cognate areas, transparent roles, duties and responsibilities for the units and people within it. At the same time, synergies will be created which break through the boundaries of the organisational chart. Objective 9.11 –Provide longer opening hours during academic year and investigate renting facilities outside academic year.
