Donegal Education and Training Board is now well underway after last year’s transition (1st July 2013) from Co Donegal VEC to ETB. We are continuing to provide a wide range of services across the county through our Schools, Colleges, Centres, Outdoor Education, Music and Youth. Please browse our website nó tar isteach sna hOifigí and speak to one of our helpful staff le níos mó eolas a fháil. We had a good week in October to get the news out there and I would like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank each and everyone who contributed and participated in the events across the County to make this a success. But there is still a lot of work to do, in informing you the public of what we do and what we’re about.
Donegal Education and Training Board officially welcomes, today Tuesday, 1st July 2014, the former SOLAS Centres in Letterkenny and Gaoth Dobhair to Donegal ETB.
This move follows the 16 ETBs, which have replaced the 33 VECs following commencement of the Education & Training Boards Act, 2013 from 1st July 2013, and Phase 2 now completes the transfer of the SOLAS Centres to the remaining 7 ETBs in the Country.
As well as both Centres now joining the provision of Training Services provided by Donegal ETB across the County, the transfer also includes the legislative transfer of employees to Donegal ETB.
Donegal ETB welcomes this new opportunity to enhance its services with the addition of the expertise and skills of both the former SOLAS Centres (now Training Centre Letterkenny and Training Centre Gaoth Dobhair) and to continue to work to provide the Donegal Community with an enhanced education and training service.
Many projects in Donegal ETB are part financed by the European Social Fund
