Overview of Service / Programmes & Certification Offered

YOUTHREACH Tuam was established in 1997 and is located in North Galway. It is a 25 person Centre and runs a number of B.T.E.I programmes. Youthreach Tuam aims to provide a programme of education, training and work experience for young people who have left school. While with us, our participants develop skills, knowledge and attitudes that will unblock barriers to learning and help them eventually to enter the world of work

The programme consists of a Foundation Phase, which develops the skills essential for further learning, and a Progression Phase that allows for further development through education, training and work experience options. Trainees are presented with the opportunity to complete the FETAC Level 3 Certificate, a number of Level 4 modules and the Leaving Certificate Applied if they wish. The preparation for these awards is based on a planned programme of study designed by the tutors who are sympathetic to the learning needs of the participants and includes all the requirements of their module descriptors.
