“With the support of VTOS and my classmates, I have not looked back since September.”

Hello, my Name is Kasem, I’m 23 years old. I have just finished my first year in VTOS, it has helped me improve my English allowing me to start a part time job. The subjects that I loved in VTOS were English and Engineering. It has given me the skills and opportunity to apply for an apprenticeship, allowing me to look after my wife and family.

My first year on Gorey VTOS. I joined VTOS in September 2020 and it was my first time back in education since 2018. When I first joined, I was a bit nervous once I got to know the Centre and the teachers I settled down. After a month on VTOS we had to continue the rest of our course online due to the covid pandemic. My second year on Gorey VTOS. I started my second year on VTOS in September 2021 we had full access to the Centre all year. It was nice meeting new people and getting to know them. Soon I will be starting my third and final year on VTOS in September and I will recommend anyone to join VTOS at the Gorey Adult & Further Education Centre

My name is Edel Crawford, I’m 44 and just finish my first year in QQI Levels 3 Employability skills and QQI level 4 in office skills, the year was full of excitement and trepidation as to whether I was going to be able for the year ahead but with all the help from the fantastic staff they made it easy. VTOS has changed how I see myself and has giving me the confidence to expect more from myself and my skills.

Hi, my name is James Tallon, I am a student in Gorey VTOS, I was part of a class with some wonderful people and was instructed by wonderful instructors who were willing to go that extra mile and go out of their way to help students. From the moment I walked into the building I found it to be a very warm friendly place to learn.

My experience in the VTOS Centre has been positive. I’ve become friends with the other students in my course and I have finished my QQI level 3 award where I completed modules such as woodwork, metalwork, nutrition, communication and IT. I am looking forward to Level 4 in September.
