ST CATHERINE’S Community Services Centre was delighted to host a graduation ceremony for students from the Moving On and Learning for Everyday Life programmes recently in the Seven Oaks Hotel, Carlow.

Students celebrated their success along with programme staff and representatives from the funding organisations KCETB, Department of Social Protection, Tusla and Carlow County Development Partnership.

Moving On is a one-year course for mothers aged 17 to 35 on a social welfare payment who wish to get back into education or work. It is a QQI Level 4 in employment skills and gives students a range of accredited modules. They also get to do manual handling, first aid, stress management, money advice and budgeting skills and make-up classes.

Childcare and after-school costs are covered by St Catherine’s, thereby making the course more accessible.

Learning for Everyday Life is a QQI Level 3 accredited course for adult learners who would like to take the first step in improving their basic level of education or English in a supportive community setting. Participants must have less than a leaving certificate level of education and/or be in receipt of a social welfare payment.

Both programmes are currently recruiting for new students for September 2023. If you would like further information, please contact Moving On co-ordinator Tony Duffy on 085 1628570 or [email protected]. Learning for Everyday Life co-ordinator Andrea Dalton can be contacted on 059 9138706 or [email protected]
