VTOS offers you the chance to:

  • Update your existing skills

  • Acquire valuable Computer and practical skills
  • Get help with literacy and numeracy
  • Make new friends and be part of a group of adults that attend a short course everyday

Achill VTOS is now accepting applications for a Tourism and Business Course starting in September 2019 … this is open to everyone but might be particularly relevant to people living in the Achill/Mulranny/Ballycroy/Newport area.

Remember when you are on VTOS you:

  • Retain your social welfare payment
  • Travel and Meal Allowance for those that are eligible
  • Childcare Supports for those that are eligible
  • Increased payments for those aged 21-25 years – 198 per week
  • Free books, materials, exam fees, trips …
