Abbeyleix Further Education Centre

Abbeyleix Further Education Centre was established in 1991. The Centre is dedicated to providing adults with further or ‘second chance’ education and training opportunities. The Centre attracts a very diverse student population which provides for a stimulating learning environment.

A wide range of courses are provided, ranging from Junior Certificate to Leaving Certificate with a broad range of subjects on offer, to Post Leaving Certificate courses and Vocational Skills Training.

The Vocational Training Opportunities Scheme (VTOS) is the main focus of provision in the Centre. Post Leaving Certificate courses are offered at the Centre and the Back To Education Initiative (BTEI) provides part-time programmes for young people and adults.

 The Staff of Abbeyleix Further Education Centre are a committed and professional team. We pride ourselves on the academic success of our students, the support we gives to students, their progression to third level institutions and to employment, and the excellent facilities that are available in the Centre.
