The Back to Education Initiative (BTEI) is a part-time programme consisting of a range of courses designed to meet the education and training needs of young people and adults, whose education attainment levels are less than Leaving Cert.
The aims of BTEI are to increase the participation in a range of accredited learning opportunities and to facilitate access, transfer and progression to other education or employment pathways. BTEI offers opportunities to continue education and training, to develop new skills, to gain certification at a range of levels and to improve employment chances.
Eligibility: Participants need to be aged 16 years and older and must be on a Social Welfare payment or have a medical card or have left full time education to apply for a BTEI course. Priority is given to people with less than a Leaving Cert standard of education.
