The UNESCO world recognised National Anti-Bullying Research and Resource Centre (ABC) is a university designated research centre located in DCU Institute of Education. The objectives of the Centre are aligned to support the UN’s overarching goal to “ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all by 2030 (SDG4). Dr Irene Connolly, founding member of the Let’s Go skills centre is a research fellow with the National Anti-Bullying Research and Resource Centre (ABC).
The LIFE project is one of the inspirations for the Let’s Go project. St John of God Community Services recognized the need for innovative curriculum and pedagogy that cultivates independence and inclusion. St John of God Community Services and IADT have started a collaboration developing instructional technologies to help young people with special educational needs become more independent and less reliant on caregivers in order to promote access, progression to employment and pathways through further education.
