Wexford Adult Education Centre Official Opening – Tuesday 28 June
Fran Kennedy, Adult Education Officer was MC on the day for the Official Opening festivities and outlined that VTOS, Adult Guidance, BTEI, Community Education and Adult Literacy programmes all run from the Wexford Adult Education Centre.
Kevin Lewis, Chief Executive Waterford and Wexford and Cllr Kathleen Codd-Nolan, on behalf of the WWETB Committee spoke about the importance of Further Education for both individuals and the larger community.
Sian Gwyther, a learner who has just finished the VTOS programme spoke wonderfully about what returning to learning has done for her in her own life.
The centre is in operation in Westgate since September 2015 and 289 Adult Learners have attended since then.
There was plenty of representation from local agencies including the County Council and the Local Enterprise Board.
South East Radio were in attendance and spoke to VTOS students about their experiences at the official open day.
It was a wonderful celebration of a fantastic centre.
