Community

    

Community Training Centres are co-funded by the Irish Government, the European Social Fund and the Youth Employment Initiative as part of the ESF Programme for Employability Inclusion and Learning 2014-2020.

Community Training Programmes

Supported training programmes are primarily developed and offered to learners who require significant additional supports to access and undertake training as part of their agreed pathway to work.  Kilkenny and Carlow ETB offer supported training provision across a range of Community Training programmes.

Community Training Centres

The Community Training Centres (CTCs) provide training to early school leavers aged between 16 and 21 years, who are most in need of basic vocational training.  The training provision is divided between ‘in-centre learning’ and ‘linked work experience learning’.  Courses lead to major QQI awards at level 3 and 4.  For more information, please refer to the below list of CTCs

Specialist Training Programme

A Specialist Training Programme (STP) delivers training courses to people with disabilities who require more intensive support than would be available in non-specialist training provision.  The National Learning Network (NLN) provides such programmes at its Training Centres in Kilkenny and Carlow.  In order to secure a place in a National Learning Network, the learner must be referred by their GP and/or the Department of Social Protection

 Local Training Initiatives

The Local Training Initiative (LTI) programme provides a range of person centred services to assist individuals to enter/re-enter the labour market.   LTI’s also promote the removal of barriers and provide supports, which ensure access to programmes, services and employment for individuals and groups experiencing exclusion and labour market disadvantage.  Initiatives are firmly rooted in the community and encourage people, primarily 35 years of age or under, who otherwise might not avail of mainstream training to develop their existing skills and learn new skills in an environment that is tailored to their particular local needs.  The LTI’s provide a range of training programmes which lead to Major QQI awards between levels 3, 4 and 5 and as such durations vary based on programme requirements.
