Bray People - - View From The Street - Myles BUCHANAN

WICK­LOW GAOL was the back­drop to aWick­low VEC pre­sen­ta­tion of cer­tifi­cates to lo­cal au­thor­ity staff who suc­cess­fully com­pleted a spe­cial train­ing pro­gramme.

The pro­gramme of­fered classes in com­mu­ni­ca­tions, maths, per­sonal ef­fec­tive­ness, con­sumer aware­ness and com­put­ers. Over 50 mem­bers of staff took part in classes held in Ark­low, Bless­ing­ton, Bray, Balt­in­glass, Carnew and Wick­low.

On Wed­nes­day af­ter­noon at Wick­low Gaol County Man­ager Ed­die Sheehy and Fiona Hart­ley, CEO of County Wick­low VEC pre­sented cer- tifi­cates to some of the par­tic­i­pants.

The Re­turn to Learn­ing pro­gramme they took part in of­fers lo­cal au­thor­ity staff the chance to re­turn to ed­u­ca­tion dur­ing work­ing hours.

Mr. Sheehy noted that the eval­u­a­tion of the pro­gramme showed con­clu­sively that each stu­dent had de­vel­oped in both skills and con­fi­dence as a re­sult of their par­tic­i­pa­tion in the project. The pro­gramme gave them the op­por­tu­nity to both re­fresh and gain new skills and knowl­edge.

Ms Hart­ley said staff and tu­tors at the six adult learn­ing cen­tre in­volved were de­lighted with the com­mit­ment of all the stu­dents and were im­pressed with their en­thu­si­asm and ded­i­ca­tion.
