Galway & Roscommon Education & Training Board

‘The heart of undiscovered Ireland’ where there is an abundance of glistening rivers, lakes, and forests set against a backdrop of castles once belonging to ancient kings. Couple that with the ‘cultural hub of Ireland’, the city where the mighty Corrib enters the Atlantic Ocean, and you can see why thousands of students flock to Galway & Roscommon Education & Training Board (GRETB) every year for further education.

From courses in Horsemanship and Motor Technology at Galway Community College to Door Security and Guarding Skills and Tourism with Business in Roscommon, GRETB has ample opportunities on offer for everyone.

GRETB provides multiple pathways for all learners – whether its part-time, full-time, or evening classes you are looking for. There is an option for everyone regardless of previous educational background or your job history.

With over 20 schools and colleges to choose from, Galway & Roscommon ETB have one of the most varied and diverse campus’s in the country.

Talent from the Galway Technical Institute overflowed last month at their art exhibition where students showcased their latest works.

If the classroom isn’t the learning environment most suitable for you then there’s lots of alternatives on offer, such as horticulture or even a course in coastal navigation for small boats from the Cashel and Glinsk Community Centre.
