Arklow Youthreach also welcomes Adrian Kinsella to the team. Adrian is a Youthreach Resource Person and will teach Woodwork from September. We wish him all the best on this new venture and look forward to exciting times ahead.

This year the centre presented the largest number of portfolios ever for certification, with over 100 portfolios entered for QQI Awards from the Arklow FETC. In Arklow Youthreach five learners achieved Major awards in Level 3 Employability Skills and six learners were awarded with Level 4 General Learning Awards. Many of these successful learners have progressed to Bray Institute of Further Education. We wish them all the best of success with their future studies.

We are now offering 121 Digital which teaches Learners (adults in the local community) - FREE of charge. The 121digital course is tailored to their needs – they choose the topics. Students themselves will work, one-to-one, with the learner. A great opportunity for both current students to teach and adults to learn a new skills.

Congratulations to all on their QQI results
