The Vocational Training Opportunities Scheme (VTOS) Athlone

VTOS is a second chance education and training scheme for adults which provides courses of up to two years duration for jobseekers. Courses are useful as routes into both further study and employment.
Prospective students need to be over 21 and in receipt of a DSP payment for 6 months prior to joining the course.
There are a variety of subject areas to choose from including Information Technology, Information Processing, Software Development, Art, Craft & Design, and Business Studies. QQI Level 5 courses are available.
Applications for places will be invited in May/June of each year. Priority will be given to applicants with lower levels of formal education.

Join us in Garrycastle on a programme that gives unemployed adults the opportunity to return to full time education without losing their benefits.
Our courses offer you the opportunity to:

  • Improve your general level of education.
  • Develop your skills and prepare for employment or self-employment
  • Prepare for a new career or a change of career
  • Obtain recognised qualifications
  • Progress to a range of Further Education and Training courses or Higher Education
Our courses are full time and take place Monday to Friday and run from September to May/June over 1 to 2 years. Course holidays are the same as Post Primary Schools including midterms, Christmas, Easter and Summer.
Contact our programme co-ordinator Maria Ryan on 09064 24200 or 086 8522795 or email us at mryan@lwetb.ie
