The Learning City Initiative is funded by Derry City and Strabane District Council, North West Regional College and Ulster University.
Derry City and Strabane District Council
Derry City and Strabane District Council is the local authority for Derry and Strabane district in Northern Ireland. It was created as part of the 2014 Northern Ireland local government reform, replacing Derry City Council and Strabane District Council.
The Council’s Strategic Growth Plan highlights the importance of lifelong learning for all its citizens and identiﬁes a number of key actions which will help lay the foundation for the north west of Ireland to become a learning region.
