Portarlington Further Education
and Training Centre

Portarlington Further Education and Training Centre was established in 2003. The Centre is dedicated to providing adults with further or second chance education and training opportunities. A broad range of provisions are provided.

Portarlington Further Education and Training Centre provides a range of QQI certified morning and afternoon classes to adults who wish to return to education on a part-time or full-time under the Vocational Training Opportunities Scheme (VTOS).

Classes are provided in a friendly and supportive environment with emphasis placed on encouraging adults to learn in a way, and at a pace, that they are comfortable with. Learners may combine modules in ways that best suit their needs and situation.
