Welcome to Abbeyleix Further Education and Training Centre
Foreword from Helen Kavanagh | Centre Director
It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to the Abbeyleix Further Education and Training Centre. The Centre is dedicated to providing adults with further or ‘second chance’ education and training opportunities. Its ethos is consistent with the profile of its learner population, meaning that its focal point is on the active participation of the learner in the decision making process.
Further Education and Training
At Abbeyleix Further Education and Training Centre we offer a wide and flexible selection of programmes, which provides the learner with numerous developmental pathways into further/higher education and employment. Under our flexible further education programmes the learner has the option to study part-time through the Back To Education Initiative (BTEI), or full-time on the Vocational Training Opportunities Scheme (VTOS/PLC). Abbeyleix Further Education and Training Centre is registered with Quality and Qualifications Ireland (QQI). We offer programmes that lead to QQI awards on the National Framework of Qualifications and therefore offer a range of courses at QQI level 3, level 4, Level 5 and level 6.
