Course Code: RTL (BTEI)
Duration: 1 Year
The Return to Learning (BTEI) course is a foundation course for adults. The aim of the course is to give adults who left school early or who are a long time out of education the opportunity to return to education and to participate in a year of learning and exploration. Students gain the knowledge and skills necessary for further study.
This Back to Education Jobs Initiative (BTEI) enables adults to return to learning in a positive and supportive environment. Classes are small and personal attention is assured.
This programme is timetabled for a maximum of 17 hours per week.
Applicants should have a standard of knowledge, skill and competence equivalent to NFQ Level 3 when accessing a Level 4 programme. Applicants may have participated in primary and secondary education although no formal qualifications are required.
Students who successfully complete RTL may apply for entry to QQI Level 5 courses in BCFE and other Colleges of Further Education. Students may also apply for entry to University Access courses.
