Literacy Workshops

Folens endeavour to provide quality, engaging events and workshops with world class speakers. Our aim is to empower teachers and give an insight into topical issues facing education.

More and more schools are facing challenges in their classrooms which could be helped by introducing a literacy initiative. Folens are committed to providing you with services to aid these initiatives. As part of that vision, whenever possible, we bring the expertise of international literacy experts to Ireland to deliver workshops and events around the country.
