Episode 7

In this weeks episode:

We investigate Learning Centres, give tips and advice on how to leave a phone message, and there's a really useful guide to being able to say no.

The programme also includes a studio interview with Margaret Wall, a student from St Basils Senior Traveller Training Centre (STTC), and Rachel Farrell, Director of the centre. The interview discusses what an STTC actually is and the various courses that they run there. Rachel talks about the oral tradition of traveller culture and learning, and how this culture has had to adapt itself to focus on reading and writing skills. Margaret talks about working in a crèche in Tallaght, a position she gained through St Basils, as well as how the opportunities that exist for travellers differ from her parents' generation. They also discuss projects that St Basils have worked on, including a book, and a calendar of photos and poems which Margaret is featured in.
