Hundreds of FETAC certs are presented

County Wexford VEC, recently incorporated into the grandly named Education and Training Board of Waterford and Wexford, has been rewarding hundreds of students for their work. FAI chief executive John Delaney turned up to lend a hand last week as certificates in the back to education initiative were presented at a ceremony in Enniscorthy's Riverside Park hotel. He was assisted by adult education manager Fran Kennedy.

The soccer supremo was in town because courses in futsal - a variation on football - were among those on the roll of honour. The list also included health care, child care, hairdressing, recreation and art - to name only a few. Courses lasting one or two years were taken at more than a dozen venues around the county - Castlebridge community centre, Gorey Adult Learning, New Ross Adult Learning, Rathnure Hall, St. John's community hospital, Raheen community centre, Bunclody Adult Learning, Clonroche community centre, Ballygarrett community centre, Taghmon family resource centre, St. Michael's Vincent de Paul in Wexford, Scoil Mhuire in Wexford, Ferns community centre and Courtown Hibs.

The back to education initiative, across FETAC levels 3 to 6, is coordinated by New Ross based Liz Duffy with her team of Eibhlín Kiellthy, Sheila Ferris, Jean Rawson, Bridget Kavanagh and Rebecca Cummins.
