Carnew Further Education and Training Centre recently relocated

to new premises on Aughrim Road, Carnew.

The new Centre has made a huge difference to staff and learners alike,

and will allow for the development and promotion of KWETB’s Further

Education & Training service in South-Wicklow. It comprises a designated

computer room, large classrooms, a canteen, office, toilet facilities

and ample parking for staff and students.

Spotlight on Carnew Further Education and Training Centre

“The new Centre is warm and inviting. It is clean and bright and the facilities are excellent!”

E. Kelly

“The new Centre provides us with an excellent learning environment. The computer room is great and I think that it has made it much easier to learn because we all have our own workspace.” C. D.

Since 2012, Carnew Adult Learning Centre, now Carnew Further Education & Training Centre has been facilitating learners from South-Wicklow under the Back to Education Initiative Programme (B.T.E.I.) in pursuing the FETAC/Q.Q.I. Level 5 award in Healthcare Support. During that time, approximately fifty learners have achieved accreditation/full awards on this course. The B.T.E.I. programme has enabled participants to return to education and gain employment in homecare, nursing homes and general hospitals as Healthcare Support Workers.
