The Rural Hub is a not-for-profit organisation based in County Cavan.
We specialise in the development of innovative educational materials and digital resources. These resources aim to address a wide range of target groups including marginalised adult learners, disadvantaged young people not in employment, educations or training (NEETs), older persons, individuals in vulnerable employment, migrant learners and entrepreneurs engaged in the creative sector, with a specific focus on the rural community.
Through the development of e-learning materials and digital resources, The Rural Hub aims to address the current and future training needs of rural residents. We also strive to address the skills gap in the provision of alternative educational materials, innovative approaches and best practices in training and education programmes.
Through our work, we collaborate with peers across Europe to develop, produce and test a range of online learning materials including video lectures, challenge-based learning resources such as online educational escape rooms and WebQuest challenges, interactive workbooks and other digital learning materials.
All educational materials are freely available to local providers of education and training, and in addition we offer flexible training on how to use the available digital media and creative approaches in their teaching practice.
Our suite of digital resources makes use of innovative methodologies for working with disadvantaged groups to build basic skills and competences, and to improve the integration of all groups and individuals into rural communities. Throughout the year we organise a series of events to raise awareness about emerging issues including online safety, disinformation, entrepreneurship, digital literacy and the radicalisation of young people through online environments.
