BTEI

BTEI (Back to Education Initiative)

What is BTEI? The Back To Education Initiative provides part-time Further Education programmes for young people and adults. The aim is to give people an opportunity to combine a return to learning with family, work and other responsibilities.

Who can take part in the BTEI Programme? Anyone who has left full-time education or is out of work can take part in a course being offered, but priority will be given to those with less than the Leaving Certificate.

What will a BTEI course cost? Individuals will have different entitlements. Those in receipt of unemployment payments or means-tested social welfare benefits and holders of medical cards are entitled to free tuition.

These programmes give learners  the opportunity to gain  confidence to progress onto many of our Level 5 courses.

Courses available under BTEI

English for Speakers of Other Languages (QQI Level 4) 

Health Service Skills (QQI Level 5)

Early Childhood Care & Education (QQI level 5)
