YOUTHREACH Tuam was established in 1997 and is located in North Galway. It is a 25 person Centre and runs a number of B.T.E.I programmes. Youthreach Tuam aims to provide a programme of education, training and work experience for young people who have left school. While with us, our participants develop skills, knowledge and attitudes that will unblock barriers to learning and help them eventually to enter the world of work.
The programme is intended to facilitate young people in returning to learning and preparing for employment and adult life. Its general objectives are as follows:
Personal and social development and increased self-esteem
Second-chance education and introductory level training
The promotion of independence, personal autonomy, active citizenship and a pattern of lifelong learning
Integration into further education and training opportunities and the labour market
The promotion of social inclusion.
The programme consists of a Foundation Phase, which develops the skills essential for further learning, and a Progression Phase that allows for further development through education, training and work experience options. Trainees are presented with the opportunity to complete the FETAC Level 3 Certificate, a number of Level 4 modules and the Leaving Certificate Applied if they wish.
