Donegal ETB’s Education and Training Fair 24th January

Donegal ETB’s annual Further Education and Training (FET) Fair will take place on Wednesday 24 January in the Mount Errigal Hotel, Letterkenny. The Fair remains the county’s number one opportunity to discover learning, attracting over one thousand adults and young people each year. January is traditionally the time to take stock of the year that has passed and plan for the year ahead. For those who would like to take a different path in 2018 the Fair is the ideal opportunity to investigate what education opportunities are available locally and discover learning with Donegal ETB and other providers.

There will be a wide range of options available; part-time and full-time learning, courses to help refresh the basics or develop knowledge in a range of areas of interest, including courses for recreation and courses to improve employment prospects. Donegal ETB tutors and advisers will be there on the day to talk through what Donegal ETB has to offer. Information will be available
on Apprenticeships, new and exciting Traineeship courses and industry certified courses. Try your hand at virtual reality welding or speak to current learners to find out firsthand what it’s like to undertake a course with Donegal ETB.

Citizens Information, Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection and SUSI Student Grants will provide general information on the supports available to support a return to learning. The ETB’s strong linkswith universities, ITs and Colleges of Further Education mean progression opportunities for learners will also be represented. Donegal ETB’s Director of Further Education and Training (FET), Cróna Gallagher said, “People should take the time on Wednesday 24 January to find out about the many education and training options available to them throughout the county and to discover learning with Donegal ETB.

There’s a wide range of education and training opportunities available across the county and beyond to suit everyone.” Many of Donegal ETB’s programmes are co-funded by the Irish government and the European Social Fund as part of the ESF Programme for Employability, Inclusion and Learning (PEIL) 2014-2020. In 2017, almost 12,000 learners completed courses in more than 120 venues across the county, making Donegal ETB the largest FET provider in the county, offering opportunities to retrain, upskill, get on the job work experience and progress onto higher education.
