Chief Executive Welcome Message

Welcome to Waterford and Wexford Education and Training Board.

Waterford and Wexford Education and Training Board (WWETB) is the statutory regional education and training authority for counties Waterford and Wexford.

Within its remit, WWETB has 14 multi-denominational and co-educational schools with over 6,000 students. This includes 12 post-primary schools, 1 community national school and 1 post leaving cert college. WWETB is joint patron of the 3 community schools in Waterford and Wexford.

We are delighted to be opening a new school in Gorey in September for children and young people with autism and complex learning needs – Gorey Hill School.

WWETB has responsibility for Further Education and Training (FET) across Waterford and Wexford, which encompasses full-time and part-time courses. There are currently over 20,000 adult learners availing of education and training with WWETB. We manage the local state provision of apprenticeships and provide many courses for young people and adults who are starting out, starting over and upskilling. We also provide adult literacy courses, including English language tuition.

Other major programmes include Music Generation which provides music performance education to thousands of young people across the two counties. We manage Youthwork projects, we provide Outdoor Education and Training (Shielbaggan), and we play a lead local role in supporting Ukrainians in education.

The vision of WWETB is “to lead learning through the delivery of high quality, inclusive, responsive, innovative education and training services in our community.”

Our vision is being implemented through the strategic goals, priorities and actions contained within the WWETB Strategy Statement 2023-2027.

We have a presence in every town and most communities across both counties. We engage with statutory bodies, business groups, community groups and voluntary agencies to ensure that we can provide the most relevant education and training opportunities.

We are proud of our dedicated staff who ensure that the learner is at the heart of everything that we do and we are committed to responding to the needs of our communities with regard to education and training.

I encourage any potential learners to take the first step and WWETB will support you with the rest. We look forward to welcoming you to one of our campuses or schools across Waterford and Wexford.
