Unsure about the next step? Lifford Youthreach can help

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 Niall Brennan. If you are an early school leaver or didn’t get the results you wanted in your exams, I would highly recommend coming to Lifford Youthreach. It is a very friendly environment in which to learn and achieve your learning goals.

“I came to Youthreach because I didn’t get the results I wanted in my Leaving Certificate. When I came to Youthreach I worked really hard for two years to try and achieve my targets and goals.

“The staff really helped me in every way they could and I really appreciate that. They’ve helped me reach my goals by achieving my Level 4 QQI and gave me more confidence when completing tasks and activities. I will start my access course in the LYIT on the 18th of September and I am really looking forward to it. I never would have thought that I would be going on to third level education,” concludes Niall.
