Back to Education Initiative (BTEI)

The Back to Education Initiative (BTEI) provides part-time courses for over 16s, aimed principally at those who have not completed Leaving Certificate (or equivalent) qualification. It gives individuals the opportunity to combine a return to learning with family, work and other responsibilities. Anyone who has left full-time education can take part in a course, but priority will be given to those with less than upper second level education.

This page contains information for ETBs, schools and community groups applying for grants under the Back To Education Initiative.
