On this day, July 1st 2013 Waterford and Wexford ETB was officially established.
The former 33 Vocational Education Committees (VECs) were dissolved and replaced by 16 Education and Training Boards (ETBs). The ETBs are established under and governed according to the Education and Training Boards Act 2013. Each ETB is a statutory body with its own corporate structure.
Subsequently, on 1st January 2014, the then Minister for Education and Skills, Ruairí Quinn T.D., formally announced the transfer of seven SOLAS Training Centres to the recently established Education and Training Boards. In accordance with this, on 1st July 2014, the WWETB officially welcomed the addition of Waterford and Wexford Training Centres (formerly the SOLAS Training Centres), to our range of services.
Waterford and Wexford Education and Training Board (WWETB) provides a comprehensive range of education and training services throughout Waterford and Wexford and is the largest education and training provider in counties Waterford and Wexford.
We are a very different organisation today.
