Fourteen students have graduated from the first Diploma initiative at the Irish Centre for Social Gerontology. The Diploma is a two-year programme – the first cycle of which ran from September 2006 to May, 2008. The programme includes a mixture of conventional lectures and visiting speakers; this gives students access to the expertise and experience of a wide range of researchers, academics and practitioners in the area of ageing. The course facilitates a high degree of participation from the students and encourages them to contribute their own knowledge and experience to the programme. The students are from diverse backgrounds in terms of age, occupation, life experience and educational background. They brought a wealth of enthusiasm to the course and the standards achieved are very high.
