Lifford Youthreach is helping school leavers

Are you or someone you know currently out of school or education, or thinking about leaving school?

Would you like to get your education back on track and gain some valuable skills and qualifications?

Lifford Youthreach may be the answer…

LIFFORD Youthreach is an education centre for early school leavers between the ages of 16 and 20 and young people who may be at risk of not completing their Junior Cert, Leaving Cert or Leaving Cert Applied. Youthreach provides QQI certification at Level 2, 3 & 4 in a range of subject and topic areas. QQI is the recognised national certification body for Ireland. Its qualifications are recognised by colleges, I.Ts and employers all over the country.

Over the coming weeks you will hear some of these success stories from past and present learners describing their time on the programme, why they attended Youthreach, what they achieved during the programme and what they have been doing since they left.

“My name is Sarah Louise McDaid and I came to Youthreach because I had left school and didn’t finish my Leaving Cert. I didn’t want to go on in life regretting that I didn’t have a proper education, so I gave Youthreach a go. I worked really hard in Youthreach for two years and achieved my Level 4 QQI certificate which is the equivalent to a Leaving Cert.

“The staff in Lifford Youthreach helped me achieve my Level 4 and I am very grateful for all of their help. I came into Youthreach a very shy person and didn’t have much confidence in myself. Youthreach helped me gain all the confidence I needed.

“I would recommend Youthreach to any young adult who has left school or didn’t get the qualifications they wanted. I am now progressing onto 3rd level education and getting ready to start the Access Course in the LYIT.”
