Vo­ca­tional Train­ing Op­por­tu­nity Scheme (VTOS) – Full-time

Fur­ther ed­u­ca­tion cour­ses are ideal for sec­ond chance adult learn­ers over the age of 21 and not in em­ploy­ment. Ma­ture stu­dents and early school leavers of­ten pur­sue VTOS with the in­ten­tion of try­ing a new ca­reer or area of study be­fore com­mit­ting to a third level de­gree. Equally many VTOS learn­ers ac­quire skills and knowl­edge that al­lows them to progress di­rectly to em­ploy­ment in a range of ar­eas.

The Vo­ca­tional Train­ing Op­por­tu­nity Scheme ( VTOS) in Gorey, will be avail­able to talk to the pub­lic on the 24th May about sup­ports on of­fer in their Cen­tre, where adult stu­dents can learn about study skills and how to write as­sign­ments, of­ten a daunt­ing task for peo­ple who have not been in ed­u­ca­tion in re­cent years or may have left school early.

Back to Ed­u­ca­tion Ini­tia­tive (BTEI) - Part­Time cour­ses

Back to Ed­u­ca­tion Ini­tia­tive is about set­ting the wheels of de­vel­op­ment in mo­tion, not just aca­dem­i­cally, but in all as­pects of the learner’s life – per­sonal, emo­tional and so­cial. It is about in­creas­ing aware­ness of ex­ist­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties, chang­ing mind­sets, build­ing con­fi­dence and re­la­tion­ships, em­pow­er­ment and not least, ad­vanc­ing ed­u­ca­tion lev­els.
