Abbeyleix FET Centre

Abbeyleix FET Centre is dedicated to providing adults with further or ‘second chance’ education and training opportunities. The centre attracts a very diverse student population and provides for a stimulating learning environment.

The Vocational Training Opportunities Scheme (VTOS) is the main focus of provision at the Centre. This programme offers a wide and flexible range of employment and further/higher education progression-focussed courses. Among the courses offered at the centre are Leaving Certificate, QQI General Learning Level 4 and a range of Post Leaving Certificate Courses (PLC) offered at QQI levels 5 and 6.

Courses are designed to enable participants to raise their general educational level and also to develop specific vocational skills.
