Bray Adult Education Centre is also called KWETB FET Centre Bray. It belongs to Kildare and Wicklow Education and Training Board. It provides courses designed to be useful to people who are hoping to become more employable.
Some of the courses lead straight to specific jobs; some of them help the participants to become ready for almost any job.
To study at Bray Adult Education Centre you must be eligible. If you want a full-time course, you must be eligible for VTOS. If you want a part-time job, you must be eligible for BTEI.
VTOS is The Vocational Training Opportunities Scheme. It's available to people who have been on a payment from The Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection (i.e. Social Welfare). Dependent spouses and people on Credits can also participate.
At least 156 days on the claim must have passed by the time you can be set up on VTOS. This scheme lasts for two years of learning.
BTEI is The Back to Education Initiative. It's available to people on DEASP payments or with Medical Cards. This is for part-time learning.
Both VTOS and BTEI are there to help people move back to the workforce. This is why Bray Adult Education Centre emphasises useful learning. We work closely with DEASP to make it possible for people to find better opportunities leading to more satisfying careers.
For parents who need childcare while they learn, funding is available through the CETS. The centre's year follows the school year, so when your kids are off, you're off too.
