The Back to Education Initiative (BTEI) provides part-time education programmes for young people and adults. It aims to give participants an opportunity to combine a return to learning with family, work and other responsibilities.
Programmes are offered in partnership with a number of agencies throughout the country on a flexible part-time basis. Classes are offered throughout the year in the morning, afternoons, evenings or weekends.
Courses lead to a range of accreditation at levels 1-6 on the NFQ
This programme is co-funded by the Irish Government and the European Social Fund as part of the ESF Programme for Employability, Inclusion and Learning 2014-2020.
These courses are Government-funded and free of charge.
