Vocational and Employee Skills Development
Under Vocational and Employee Skills Development we offer part-time Further Education and Training courses for adults and young people, giving them an opportunity to return to learning. These courses lead to certification at NFQ Levels 3 to 5.
This particularly supports those who may have previously experienced barriers to participation in education and find it more difficult to engage in the formal learning process.
It is a re-entry route for those in the workplace who wish to upgrade their skills in line with emerging needs. Its emphasis on part-time courses provides a chance to combine a return to education and training with family, work and other responsibilities.
This provision is co-funded by the Government of Ireland and the European Social Fund as part of the ESF Programme for Employability, Inclusion and Learning 2014 – 2020.
