Community Training Centres (CTCs) are independent community-based organisations, which provide training and education for early school leavers, primarily aged between 16 and 21. CTCs can also provide for other young people under the age of 25 who are disadvantaged and/or unemployed, with the agreement of the relevant Education & Training Board.
Examples of programmes offered include employability skills, personal and social employment skills and science skills. All programmes offer personal and social skills development through modules such as communications, personal effectiveness, teamwork, career planning and literacy and numeracy support which are integrated with the vocational training modules. Courses are full-time and can lead to major awards on the NFQ at levels 3 and 4.
Further information on these courses can be found by contacting your local ETB:
