Elizabeth Taylor Archives

Elizabeth, wearing Christian Dior, returns to the city of her birth for the CBS TV special ELIZABETH TAYLOR IN LONDON.

She was paid a then record breaking $250,000 for her first television special, which aired October 6, 1963 (and Christmas Eve on the BBC). Variety called the pairing of Elizabeth and London "the world’s most distracting foreground with its most illustrious background".

Hugh Lane Gallery

'W. B. Yeats' ~ Sarah Purser.

Sarah Purser played a pivotal role in the life of the Municipal Art Gallery. It was the exhibition she organised of work by John Butler Yeats and Nathaniel Hone in 1901 that inspired Hugh Lane to establish a gallery of modern art.

It was also her suggestion that Charlemont House would be a suitable location to house the collection and following the completion of a purpose-built extension, it became the permanent home for the Municipal Art Gallery in 1933. Her lasting legacy is the founding of the Friends of the National Collections of Ireland, which has resulted in many significant artworks entering the collection.

Yeats was a nationalist and led the Irish Literary Revival, a movement of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries which provoked a renewed enthusiasm for new and traditional Irish literature. In 1904 together with Lady Gregory he founded the Abbey Theatre to stage Irish plays.

However, towards the end of his life Yeats became disillusioned by the narrow-mindedness of those who wanted to promote Irish cultural identity as Catholic and nationalist.

Waterford VTOS - Free Education

Celebration of VTOS over the Last 25 years: Waterford Adult Education Centre – Our Story.

The Waterford VTOS Centre (WAEC) has been offering educational and training courses to adult learners under the Vocational Training Opportunities Scheme since 1994. WAEC is committed to the delivery of a quality education service in a supportive learning environment. We are also committed to the holistic value of education and training which enhances the development of the individual, the family and society by working in partnership with other organisations such as the Adult Learning Scheme, Social Protection, Regional Education Guidance Service for Adults, Waterford Institute of Technology and in our most recent collaborations the Waterford City Enterprise Board, Kite Design Centre, and St. Vincent de Paul.

VTOS first began in Waterford City in Adult Education Centre located on the appropriately named College Street. We began with Junior and Leaving Certificate courses, Computers and Business, and Craft. Photography, Media and Interior Design later followed. Accreditation was initially the State Examinations Board, RSA and City & Guilds and later NCVA, now FETAC. In 2007, we relocated to a new state-of-the-art premises in Durands Court, officially opened by the then Minister, Martin Cullen. The centre for the first time had specialised studios for craft, pottery, interior design and computer laboratories for our learners. Over time the courses offered have changed in response to the needs of our adult learners and the changes in society. WAEC now offers FETAC Level 5 in Interior Design & Decoration, Art, Craft & Design, Fashion Design & Accessories and Information Technology & Business Administration. Recently, WAEC was involved in writing the Programmes for the Creative Craft Award and the Ceramics and Painting Components for FETAC under the new Common Awards System.

Every year WAEC celebrates the achievement of our learners in our annual Awards Ceremony. As part of Work Experience, our students stage an annual Craft Exhibition in the Waterford City Municipal Library, and a Fashion Show & Exhibition. Last year, WAEC held an exhibition showcasing the work of past and present Interior Design students in a local Colourtrend shop. It was an exciting new departure for the centre to work with a local business to showcase the talents and skills of our students. Every exhibition and awards ceremony is both individual and special because every student’s journey of learning will be unique and inspirational.

One of WAEC’s most memorable highlight was in 2010, when a former Interior Design graduate, Ms. Ann Marie Brett-Jennings was presented an award by the President of Ireland, Mary McAleese to celebrate One Million People Achieving FETAC Awards. Ann Marie is now in her final year of her Visual Arts Degree (Hons.) in WIT. Another highlight was the First Flight Initiative when Waterford City Enterprise Board and the Kite Design Centre offered three placements last summer to two current Craft students and one Fashion Design graduate to support the development of their enterprises in fashion design and jewellery making. This collaboration was further built upon with WAEC graduates selling their designs in the Kite Design Centre over the Christmas period and attending Showcase in the RDS this January. WAEC is also working in partnership to establish a Craft Initiative to support our graduates and new craft and design businesses in Waterford. WAEC has also collaborated with St. Vincent de Paul in staging their first Upcycled Fashion Show in the South East to promote their charity shops. An initiative that it is hoped to be built upon by proposals to develop a Community Employment Scheme involving our graduate students.

The Waterford Adult Education Centre has also developed a quality Information Technology and Business Administration course that is responsive to the demands of the work place with the introduction of FETAC Level 5 Computerised Accounts and Payroll and more recently, FETAC Level 5 Web Authorising CSS. Graduates of this course such as Michelle Gault is an Associate Auditor after achieving a Degree and Masters in Accounting and another graduate, Paul Dower has set up a business, Waterford in Your Pocket, to promote local events after graduating with a Degree in International Business and a Masters in Internalisation.

Over the years, many of our graduates have progressed on to further education, training and employment in areas as diverse as Social Care, Nursing, Administration, Accounting Marketing, Languages, Teaching and the Fine Arts.

This year the Waterford Adult Education Centre will celebrate its 20th anniversary and the successes and achievements we will celebrate are very much part of the story of VTOS nationwide as VTOS celebrates its 25th Anniversary.

The Benefits of VTOS: A Learners’ Perspective

Anita Oakey: WAEC Interior Design Graduate and Owner of Aoki Interiors

“I attended the VTOS Interior Design and Decoration course from September 2005-May 2007. It was a thoroughly enjoyable experience that I almost missed out on due to a lack of confidence. I signed up for September 2004, but fear held me back and it took all my strength to reapply the following September. The amazing support and encouragement I received from the teachers and staff at the college gave me the courage and confidence I needed, and the friendships I formed with my class will stay with me for life. Having three small children, I had many problems with childcare but I received amazing support and the college was flexible which made it possible for me to continue to the end.

The course not only built my confidence but has given me skills that I can carry through to a future career. When I began, I wished only for a little but I gained much more. I initially wanted to learn curtain-making, hoping to do a little sewing at home to make some money. Instead, I discovered hidden talents for art and design. I have since taken on a course to further my education in interior design with the long-term plan of becoming a self-employed interior designer.

Without the start, or the support, encouragement and flexibility that the Waterford Adult Education Centre has given me, I would not have realized the talent, ability or the ambition within me, nor would I have the confidence to pursue a career. If I can do it, so can you! Just one step at a time and you might even surprise yourself.”

Anita Oakey wrote the above testimonial for our prospectus in 2008. In 2012, she attended our Awards Ceremony as a guest speaker to tell us of her new and original interior design venture, Aoki Interiors, which she had set up the previous year with her husband. Aoki Interiors focuses on providing a wide range of Interior Design services and it has been featured in publications such as House & Home, the Irish Times and the Irish Tatler to name a few.
