Fingal Adult Education is situated in the towns of Balbriggan and Swords. There are also offices in Riversdale and Blanchardstown. All services offer the Fingal community a wide variety of courses from modular computer and art classes to full awards at QQI level 5 and 6. We provide a supportive service as we understand the challenges that adults face returning to education, from childcare issues to students that have never used a computer before.
Fingal Adult Education Service provides an education programme to adults who are aged 18 and over.
We offer relevant courses to suit the needs of jobseekers and those that wish to gain valuable qualifications and skills.
Students can progress from single module classes to full awards and/or VTOS, from level 2 to level 6 all at a pace that is suitable to their needs. Many students continue their education in PLC colleges, Institutes of Technology and Universities with others gaining employment in their field of study.
Most of our courses are free to those unemployed or in receipt of a medical card, while some higher level courses are fee paying.
Both centres are serviced well by public transport. Find Us here.
