Back to Education initiative


Whatever your reason for going back to education,
there is a course to suit you.

The Back to Education Initiative (BTEI) helps you to develop skills for employment and skills for life. We have a selection of flexible part-time courses that allows you to balance your education, work, and family life. Tuition is completely free for early school leavers, those in receipt of social welfare payments, a dependant of a social welfare recipient, or holders of a full medical card.

Our courses are part-time and range from two evenings to three days per week, so you can upskill or prepare yourself for employment without making drastic changes to your daily life. We offer a wide range of accredited courses in the following areas; QQI Level 5 Healthcare Support, QQI Level 6 Advanced Certificate in Early Childhood Care and Education, QQI Level 4 General Learning, QQI Level 3 Introduction to Hairdressing and QQI Level 3 Employability Skills.

Our experienced staff and modern learning facilities create the perfect atmosphere to achieve your goals, and combined with practical course content and a variety of supports – you are closer to those goals than you think.
