November 14th 2016 saw a wonderful night of celebration as Bray Adult Learning Centre welcomed Minister Simon Harris TD to present certificates to students who completed QQI courses at the Centre in 2015-16.

Tutors and students joined together to celebrate all the hard work undertaken during the last year. Minister Harris congratulated the students on their achievements and told them that it took guts to go back to education as an adult. Jim Ruttle, Chairperson of KWETB told the students they should be proud of their decision to return to education as adults and thanked them for choosing to study with KWETB.

Students Tanya Byrne and Robert Slater told the audience of their own decisions to return to education having left school early and they both outlined how much their skills and confidence have grown over the last few years. The students were joined in their celebrations by their tutors and family and friends who support and encourage them as they progress on their learning journey.
