Training for a better future
First floor, Ballyfermot Family Resource Centre
Kylemore Community Training Centre (KCTC), formerly a Community Training Workshop, first opened its doors circa 1981 in a classroom in a De La Salle primary school in Ballyfermot.
Originally, it was part of a larger social project supporting the people of the parish.
Collaboration between the Dominican sisters and FÁS (now SOLAS) realised an opportunity to provide a second chance education to the young people in the area.
To this day KCTC has sustained its position immersed within the community by ensuring the training we offer is relevant and labour market related. We promote a positive attitude to lifelong learning; active citizenship and social inclusion using a learner centred holistic approach to development.
KCTC offers a new start to young adults who have left school early and want to obtain nationally recognised QQI certification at their own pace.
Courses on offer are:
- Health and Fitness
- Tourism and Hospitality
- ICT Skills
- Biology and Horculture
