“When I finished school I was unsure of my future. Taking the placement at the Community Training Centre gave me an opportunity to develop a career plan. I feel that the centre offered a very supportive environment. There was no pressure to focus on a specific career plan. There was time to develop and mature and thus arrive at a career plan in Business that has been really satisfactory for me.”

“They not only showed me the skills and tools I needed, my exposure to the kind, committed, and dedicated staff, taught me to be confident in my abilities, which has enabled me to progress my studies, and accomplished a B. A. (Honours) Level 8 Degree at Waterford Institute Of Technology”

“When I was in school I realised it wasn’t for me. I left early and went to the centre where I learned some life skills and it gave me more time to decide what it was I wanted to do. All the staff where great fun and I have great memories from my time there.”
