Adult Education Overview

Welcome to CMETB Adult Education Services

CMETB Adult Education Services are continually growing and developing. There is now a wide range of courses, supports and programmes to suit adult learners of all ages and abilities and to cater for different interests.
Our Adult Education Services provide education, training and support to more than 4,500 learners annually. The courses vary from hobby programmes, basic skills courses and certified programmes. We work with learners and help them to complete their course and, where relevant, progress to a higher level of education and training.
We also offer a free and confidential Adult Education Guidance and Information service (AEGIS). This helps people to identify their interests and chose a programme which will suit and ultimately benefit them.
Adult Education Services are provided throughout Cavan and Monaghan in numerous locations both rural and urban. Furthermore, our programmes are provided on a full and part time basis. This enables people to participate in education and training locally and conveniently, while still managing their other commitments.
Our Adult Education Services are detailed on this website. I hope you will find something of interest to you – whether you want to refresh your basic skills (e.g. reading, writing & maths), take up a new hobby, gain IT skills, do a certified programme or access professional guidance to support you on your journey back to education. Our programme of classes, services and activities is varied and changes regularly, so please check the website regularly to find out what we’re up to. Similarly, we’re always open to new ideas about what services we can deliver and in what way. So, any feedback is gratefully received.

I wish you enjoyment and success in whatever adult education programme you chose to do, and trust that CMETB will support you on your learning journey.
