VTOS gives adults who may have left school at a young age an opportunity to re-engage with
education for a second time, make new friends, open new doors and to improve their confidence and skills. It allows individuals to look into different career options and often students do progress on to Third Level Education to explore career paths that they had previously only dreamed of.

The teachers who work in Boyle VTOS Centre are all very dedicated to the work of Adult
Education. They are committed to teaching their modules in which they are all highly qualified. It is enjoyable to work with adults and to play a part in helping them to reach their full potential especially when those individuals unleash new talents or skills that can surpass even their own expectations.

At Boyle VTOS Centre we are offering a QQI Level 5 Award over two years. Business
Administration 5M2468, Horticulture 5M2586 or Horsemanship 5M3371 are all offered
