• Are you?

Between 16 and 21 years of age and unemployed.

• What to do next?

Call into Blanchardstown Community Training Centre any time. There is no need to make an appointment, just drop in and we’ll explain how you can join a course. You can also phone 01 8035016 or fill out the contact form on our website.

• What happens when you get here?

You will be asked to fill out an application form containing basic information such as your name, address, age, contact numbers, PPS number, when you left school and what certification you have already achieved. You will then meet with Sarah or Ciara for an informal chat and we’ll ask you to return with any documents that we need to complete your application.

• Final steps…

We’ll invite you into the centre to do an assessment in English and maths. This is not a test, it allows us to figure out whether you should join a class at Level 3 or Level 4 (we’ll explain all that!). Then we’ll add you to our waiting list.

When a place becomes available, we’ll give you a call. You’ll be invited to attend induction to learn about the rules of the centre and to meet with your instructor to discuss your individual learning plan. Then we’ll be able to give you your start date.
