It was with great pleasure that the EQUASS Awarding committee awarded the National Learning Network (NLN) in Ireland on the 31st of August 2015. The National Learning Network was established in Ireland in 1995, and serves 2.500 persons, providing Supported Vocational Training and Rehabilitative Training.

This is the 3rd re-certification for the NLN, which was first certified with the EQRM (European Quality in Rehabilitation Mark) in 2004 for its services in Tallaght, Limerick, Sligo and Wexford. This time again, the NLN extended the audit to 27 locations and 20 satellite services, with a total score of 67,1.
